The purpose of this paper is to construct a modeI that wiII aid in analyzing present agricultural policies along with feasible alternatives. Recently completed studies of production costs, crop prices and yields, and experimental technologies were used as sources of data. A linear programming model was used to project suggested investment for agriculture in land, labor, and capital inputs in order to achieve specific crop production targets. The paper is divided into four major parts: the theory of policy-making, the model description, the application of the model to Boliva, and the results and conclusions, in that order.
