The objective of research is to formulate a plan for Al Husain agricultural city project in Karbala'a province by using linear programming method as one of planning tools and maximize the projects' profits. At the beginning the available resources were surveyed the need of activities from resources during productive season was calculate. The objective of the model was to maximize the gross margins of activities within available resources constraints and comparing it with the carried out from actual plan. Many mathematical models were formulated and the farm management could choose the plan that suits its' objective, all these models were derived from the prime model by using sensitivity analysis. the result showed that suggested plan achieved gross margin more than actual plan by 18% as the actual plan achieved gross margin of ID (710.17) millions while the suggested plan achieved ID (837.49) million . Many variable changes were supposed whether in the gross margin of objective or in the right side (RSH) of the model. The outcome was six alternative mathematical models in general and eight in details all of which achieved gross margin more than the gross margin achieved from the actual farm plan.
