A farmer has 200 acres of land suitable for cultivating crops A, B and C. The cost per acre of cultivating crop A, crop B and crop C is $40, $60 and $80, respectively. The farmer has $12,600 available for land cultivation. Each acre of crop A requires 20 labor-hours, each acre of crop B requires 25 labor-hours and each acre of crop C requires 40 labor-hours. The farmer has a maximum of 5950 labor-hours available. If he wishes to use all his cultivatable land, the entire budget and all the labor available, how many acres of each crop should he plant?
