A triangular intuitionistic fuzzy linear programming (TIFLP) model is formulated for the planning of sustainable fruit production system for hyperarid regions while assuming the availability of resources and existing knowledge. A remarkable advancement is achieved through the composition of intuitionistic fuzzy concept with the linear programming by considering all parameters and variables in the form of triangular intuitionistic fuzzy numbers, which provides a planning or strategic tool for handling uncertain situations with more control and in a realistic way. This fuzzy optimization model is redesigning the feasible region obtained by linear programming which is presented in graphical form. Moreover, the practical application and implementation of this fruit production system for planning in real-life scenarios are accomplished considering the case study of fruit orchards of Baluchistan, Pakistan.
