The pace of irrigation development in independent India has been rapid and the contribution of minor irrigation system is around 41.85M ha. Unfortunately command area planning for the major irrigation projects has received sufficient attention and various methodology have been developed for optimal water use planning but no such effort has been made for the minor irrigation systems. Although the methodologies are similar for both types of commands there will be a change in approach due to change in level of planning which necessitates a need to develop an approach for command area planning of minor irrigation projects incorporating factors which affect the micro level planning. In this paper the linear programming model was used and the problem was solved through LINDO software for integrated crop and livestock planning in Gunduraposi MIP located in Dhenkanal district of Odisha. It is seen that while considering maximisation of profit the area under rice crop was 58.7% of the command area where as in case of maximising of production the same rice crop came around 62% of command area. In case of minimisation of investment on the rice crop, it is around 56% of command area. Profit was increased by 9% and 3.22% in production maximization and Net Return maximization model compared to Investment minimization model respectively.

Keywords: Minor irrigation project, Linear programming, Profit maximization, Production maximization, Investment minimization
