Abstract: 

After Wheat and Barley, Corn is the third important crop in the word and Iran, corn is used mainly for feeding live stocks. In this study comparative advantage of corn in comparison with other competiting crops was investigated applying Linear Programming to 2004-2005 data in arid and Semi-arid of fars province. Results showed corn has comparative advantage in Fars province except in Neyriz. In addition, comparing optimum cultivation pattern resulted from Linear programming models with crops rating based on comparative advantage indices indicated that restriction in availability of resources, variable cost of tradable and nontradable inputs and yield will lead in shifting comparative advantage from one crop to another. Factors such as supporting policies, rotation, and resource constraint might also have effect on comparative advantage of crops and optimum cropping pattern.
