Operational research has been applied to solve agricultural and forest management problems over the decades. Assigning resources on farms, determining a diet to feed animals at minimum cost or planning forest areas to be cut are examples of them.

The main purpose of the Working Group on Operations Research in Agriculture and Forest Management is to encourage communication and research between small groups of members specialising in particular topics. The WG is open to people with different backgrounds (like industry, university, etc) and who are interested on OR methods and its application in Agriculture and Forest Management in order to exchange ideas, experiences and research results. In this context, we invite everyone interested in this topic to join us.

The group started in 2003 and is a part of The Association of European Operational Research Societies (EURO).
