Multiple-crop selection (MCS) models is the method used to choose multiple crops for cultivation according to specific needs such as water access, soil access, climate variability, market price, net profit. In general, different types of soil each need different kinds of nutrients and water types and quantities. Also, the amount of water required for the crop depends on the crop and the climate in which the crop is grown. Therefore, it is classified as an optimization problem. The purpose of this study is to identify the optimal crop set based on water availability and propose a multiple crop selection model using firefly optimization. The primary goal is to increase the net profit of the farmer. In the Matlab toolbox, the proposed algorithm is developed.
