Abstract

A mathematical model is developed to determine the optimum rate of mixed fertilizer as well as the rate of leaves fertilizer to produce quality pineapples. Regressional method using Excel and LINDO optimizer software were used in the application of the model. It is found that the combination of fertilizer for mtrogen 75.00 kg/ha, phosporus 57.00 kg/ha and potassium 89.00 kg/ha produces a high yield of pineapple and the objective to minimize fertilizer cost is fully achieved.
