A solution to the problem of establishing optimum farm plans for any given area may lie in the establishment of area bench mark plans from which individual farm interpretation can be made. This study attempts to develop some optimum farm plans for specific farm situations commonly found in the Rural Municipality of Wilton No. 472 in Northwestern Saskatchewan. The method used is the profit maximizing model of the linear programming technique. This technique was chosen because expected input - output coefficients can be used and numerous alternatives can be tested simultaneously.
