Present paper is an application study of intuitionistic fuzzy optimization technique in agricultural production planning problem particularly a case of smallholder farmer in north Bihar, India. Generally, the crop planning problem is formulated as linear programming problems. but in realistic situation there are many uncertain factors in agricultural production planning problems and hence future profits for crop are imprecise and uncertain values. Therefore, we propose a model of crop planning using intuitionistic fuzzy optimization technique.
