Crop planning optimization model: the validation and verification processes

Abstract: Each optimization problem in the area of natural resources claims for a specific validation and verification (V&V) procedures which, for overwhelming majority of the models, have not been developed so far. In this paper we develop V&V procedures for the crop planning optimization models in agriculture when the randomness of harvests is considered and complex crop rotation restrictions must hold. We list the criteria for developing V&V processes in this particular case, discuss the restrictions given by the data availability and suggest the V&V procedures. To show its relevance, they are applied to recently constructed stochastic programming model aiming to serve as a decision support tool for crop plan optimization in South Moravian farm. We find that the model is verified and valid and if applied in practice—it thus offers a plausible alternative to standard decision making routine on farms which often leads to breaking the crop rotation rules.
