This paper describes how the fuzzy goal programming (FGP) can be efficiently used for modelling and solving land allocation problems having chance constraints for optimal production of seasonal crops in agricultural system.
In the proposed model, utilization of total cultivable land, different farming resources, achievement of the aspiration levels of production of seasonal crops are fuzzily described. The water supply as a productive resource and certain socio-economic constraints are described probabilistically in the decision making environment.
In the solution process, achievement of the highest membership value (unity) of the membership goals defined for the fuzzy goals of the problem to the extent possible on the basis of the needs and desires of the decision maker (DM) is taken into account in the decision making horizon. The potential use of the approach is demonstrated by a case example of the Nadia District, West Bengal (W. B.), INDIA.
