Abstract
The clarification of the theoretical questions pertaining to the planning of agricultural enterprises is imperative in realizing the goals of the input-transformation-output relation. We also can not disregard pinning theory against actual use, meaning the inclusion of limitations in agricultural corporate practice. Scientifically well-prepared processes can go to waste if their limitations have not been evaluated as a result of the absence of information on implementation, theoretic unpreparedness, lack of motivation, or other various reasons. Therefore, in our analyses, we would also like to devote some time to the feasibility of planning and the outlining of planning methods useful for actual practice via actual plant inspections. During the planning phase, extreme difficulties may arise in the form of including environmental effects and making the impacts of the entrepreneur's decisions on the environment felt. Modeling these environmental and climate interactions and including them in planning models are the focus of this examination. The analyses were conducted at the Experimental Farm of Szent Istvan University in Hungary, which has served as the background of different plant economy analyses since 1992. Our experiences, including more than ten years of planning, preparation of decisions, and analysis in the experimental farm, allow us to draw many useful conclusions.
