Due to the need for a high amount of output, farmers cultivate larger areas of land, with heavy use of machinery. It involves farming on large areas of land to maximize output and profits.
This type of farming requires huge capital and involves extensive labour.
Rather than solving an assignment problem only, it is here also accounted for the connectivity between fields.
In practice, fields are often located distant apart.
– This is farming which is done for consumption of the farm owners, can be either Primitive or Intensive.
Here the only aim is to fulfil the needs of the farmer and his family.
For large numbers of fields, where these algorithms may not be tractable due to computational constraints, elements of clustering and the solution of local Traveling Salesman Problems are added, thereby on the one hand rendering the method heuristic and in general suboptimal, but on the other hand maintaining large-scale applicability.
The pivotal purpose of the assignment was to get a general picture of the geographic distribution of agricultural production and highlight some common trends and problems in the use of agricultural land.
Primitive subsistence farming is the type of subsistence farming that is typically done on small areas of land with traditional tools like hoe, dao, digging sticks etc.
This is rather the most natural method of growing crops, because, the natural environment like heat, rain, wind and condition of the soil contribute to the growth of crops.
