Abstract

The ultimate goal of this study is to define an efficient fertilizer distribution system for Korea. As indicated, such a system would deliver the right type of fertilizer to the farmers at the right time and place, in sufficient quantities, and at a minimum cost. To achieve this, spatial and temporal aspects of the Korean fertilizer distribution system in 1972 and in 1978 were considered. Specific objectives of this study are: (1) to discuss the analytical approach and select analytical models to solve certain fertilizer distribution problems; (2) to identify the characteristics of the Korean fertilizer distribution system; (3) to approximate the fertilizer supply and utilization in 1972 and in 1978; (4) to determine the optimum fertilizer flow and storage patterns and minimum fertilizer distribution cost for the 1972 fertilizer distribution system; and (5) to determine the optimum fertilizer flow patterns and the optimum number, size, and location of fertilizer storage centers for the 1978 fertilizer distribution system. For the 1978 fertilizer distribution system, bagging, storage, and blending activities are introduced at regional storage centers.
