Abstract

This paper presents a preemptive goal programming model for multi-objective nutrient management problem by determining the optimum fertilizer combination for chilli plantation in Sungai Buloh Malaysia. Application of nutrients to the soil is commonly done by using fertilizers. A fertilizer is said to be a complete or mixed fertilizer when it contains nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (N-P-K). A set of data have been used to test the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed model. Results of the model indicate that all objectives have been achieved. Moreover with the fertilizer combination, the current cost of fertilizer used for chilli plantation can be reduced. The flexibility of the model can be done by adjusting the goal priorities with respect to the importance of each objective.
