About this book

Introduction

The scope of this book is Operations Research methods in Agriculture and a thorough discussion of derived applications in the Agri-food industry.  The book summarizes current research and practice in this area and illustrates the development of useful approaches to deal with actual problems arising in the agriculture sector and the agri-food industry.

This book is intended to collect in one volume high quality chapters on Methods and Applications in Agriculture and Agri-food industry considering both theoretical issues and application results.  Methods applied to problems in agriculture and the agri-food industry include, but are not restricted to, the following themes:

  • Dynamic programming
  • Multi-criteria decision methods
  • Markov decision processes
  • Linear programming
  • Stochastic programming
  • Parameter estimation and knowledge acquisition
  • Learning from data
  • Simulation
  • Descriptive and normative decision tree techniques, including: agent modelling and simulation, and state of the art surveys

Each chapter includes some standard and traditional methodology but also some recent research advances. All the applications presented in the chapters have been inspired and motivated by the demands from the agriculture and food production areas.
