The Generalized Regional Agriculture Model (GRAM) presented in this paper is to form part of a system of regional models. It is not intended as a specialized agriculture model but rather as a means of reflecting the agricultural sector in the model system. This model, being general, may be used in various socioeconomic systems and yet it is sufficiently detailed to be capable of providing practical results. The main purpose of the model is to solve, by means of linear programming, large-scale problems of regional agricultural specialization. It has been designed to include all significant feedbacks and results from the other models in the system. Information will be transferred both directly and indirectly from these other models to GRAM and vice versa. GRAM includes a comprehensive description of factors such as land use, production structure, animal-feed rations, technology choices, and availability of resources. These factors affect decisions about agricultural specialization. The model includes both monetary and nonmonetary objective functions.
