Considering the rapid increase in the world population, it is inevitable that the need for food will increase. Although the use of new technologies in agriculture seems to improve productivity, this improvement decreases over time and we are faced with the depletion of natural resources as a result of technology. While trying to increase efficiency, production should be done with the thought of protecting natural resources. Turkey has always been a favorable region for the agricultural sector in terms of climate characteristics, soil fertility and natural resources. Fruit trees are long-lived plants that can produce products for many years, unlike many plants that produce seasonal products. In order to get maximum efficiency from the garden to be built, first of all, great importance should be given to the selection of the land. While climate, soil structure, water and location of the land are very important as ecological factors, factors such as transportation, water and energy should also be considered as economic factors. Then, the soil structure should be analyzed well. Air and water ratios of mineral and organic substances in the soil are very important. In this study, the integrated use of multi-criteria decision making and game theory is addressed to solve land selection problem. The establishment of the game payoff matrix is provided by using Fuzzy TOPSIS. Evaluation criteria and strategies are determined and the properties of the land are evaluated according to the demands of the producer and the proximity coefficients are obtained.
