A method of correcting rural farmlands network to increase the participation level in the design complexes

key words: optimization of the farmlands plain, and design complexes of plots

Summary:

The correction method developed increases the number of farms participating
in the design complexes of plots and refers to an optimization model optimizing
the layout of farmlands as regards the plains of plots. The optimization
model applied is based on dividing the design complexes of plots into small elementary
strips. This correction method aims at eliminating too low participation
levels of farms since they make it impossible to section off plots with sufficiently
large areas. The effectiveness of this correction method increasing the number offarms participating in the design complexes of plots has been confirmed by the example
of the village of Wojków. With this correction method applied, the majority
(more than 90%) of farms smaller than 1 ha could be removed from the complexes
of plots. Other low participation levels of farms with small areas are usually a result
of too small areas of both the farms and the design complexes of plots.
