Original Abstract

In this paper, we deal with well-known distribution problems and discuss their restrictions, extensions and modifications including a possible application in agriculture. We show that the transportation problem can be transformed to an allocation, location and set covering problem using special constraints, but because of NP-hardness of the last problem it needs quite different methods of its solving. Another modification of the transportation problem, the crop problem, has an application in agriculture, but we must deal with uncertain data. We propose a genetic algorithm and fuzzy logic approach for solving these problems.
