The Aundha minor irrigation project located in Hingoli District of Maharashtra state envisages construction of earthen dam, 400 m. long and 15.5 m. high to impound about 190 ha-m. volume of water. The gross commend area of the project is 398 ha. Considering various resources availability and constraints of Aundha minor irrigation project command area single and multi- objective mathematical programming models were formulated. Different parameters such as requirement and availability of water, labour and fertilizer, economics, food, nutrient and animal food requirements and their availability from recommended cropping pattern were estimated. Single objective plan viz., maximisation of net benefit and production; minimisation of investment, maximisation as will as minimisation of labour were considered using different levels of fertilizer and irrigation efficiencies. Finally a best compromise plan was worked out with the help of a multi-objective allocation model using fuzzy technique to the command area of Aundha MIP (minor irrigation project)
