Abstract

Cucumber is a family of Cucurbitaceae which is one of the favourite vegetables consumed in Malaysia. A study was conducted to maximize cucumber production and minimize the total cost of fertilizer used to plant cucumber by using the goal programming approach. Five different fertilizers having different combination of Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K) were analysed.The result indicated that the fertilizer that would optimize nutrients and minimize the total cost of cucumber production are NPK Biasa and NPK Green consisting of 80 kg/ha of Nitrogen, 75 kg/ha of Phosphorus and 60 kg/ha of Potassium.
