dc.description.abstract The main purpose of this study was to determine what effect irrigation would have on a farm in the Morden-Winkler area of southern Manitoba. A budgetary analysis as well as linear programming were used to determine optimum farm organization under dryland and irrigation conditions. Using the two methods provided an opportunity to compare them and to indicate how the two methods could be used in analyzing a farm organizational problem such as this. Several levels of operations capital were used to show how these farms plans could be most profitably expanded as additional operating capital became available. The analysis was designed to show also how well irrigation programs could compete with dryland programs for the various factors of production. Two surveys were made in the proposed irrigation area to gain information on land-use, farm organization, capital structure, income and expenses. 0n the basis of this information farms were selected for analysis and were used to develop a case farm. These fourteen farms were of similar size and nature and located on similar soil type. The case farm was 240 acres in size with 200 acres improved. It was estimated that 153 acres on this farm were suitable for irrigation. 0nly surface irrigation was considered in the analysis... en_US
