Abstract: This paper presents a generalized linear programming (LP) and farm budget model for optimization of on-farm irrigation benefits resulting from variations in irrigation project size. The paper also summarizes applications of the model to two proposed projects - the Lake Andes-Wagner, South Dakota, and Columbia Basin, Washington irrigation projects.
