Tropicsun is a leading grower and distributor of fresh citrus products with three large citrus groves scattered around south Florida in the cities of Mt. Dora, Eustis, and Clermont. Tropicsun currently has 275,000 bushels of citrus at the grove in Mt. Dora, 400,000 bushels at the grove in Eustis, and 300,000 at the grove in Clermont. Tropicsun has citrus processing plants in Ocala, Orlando, and Leesburg with processing capacities to handle 200,000 bushels, 600,000 bushels, and 225,000 bushels, respectively. Tropicsun contracts with a local trucking company to transport its fruit from the groves to the processing plants. The trucking company charges a flat rate for every mile that each bushel of fruit must be transported. Each mile a bushel of fruit travels is known as a bushel-mile. The following table summarizes the distances (in miles) between the groves and processing plants: Distances (in miles) Between Groves and Plants Grove Ocala Orlando Leesburg Mt. Dora 21 50 40 Eustis 35 30 22 Clermont 55 20 25 Help Tropicsun determines how many bushels to ship from each grove to each processing plant in order to minimize the total number of bushel-miles the fruit must be shipped.
