This paper presents an application of LINGO software to allocate the area for production maximization in Jaisamand command area of Udaipur district. The linear programming model was developed and solved in LINGO software. The area allocated for different crop activities in 9,18,21,24 and 30 canal running days was obtained. The optimal food production for maize, soyabean, moong, wheat, mustard, gram and barley in 9,18,21,24 and 30 canal running days obtained as 33454.94, 70278.44, 68502.53, 71987.65 and 72082.02 tonnes with investment of 403.00, 773.78, 797.67, 845.09 and 851.22 million Rs. respectively. The net benefit obtained as 219.55, 58.02, 451.89, 456.06 and 455.43 million Rs. for 9,18,21,24 and 30 canal running days respectively.
