The purpose of the article is to study the peculiarities of the use of agricultural land resources, which are one of the determinants of economic development and environmental security of the state. The relevance and importance of the search for development scenarios of agricultural land market, the definition of the content and implementation of state regulation in the sphere of agricultural land use, the presence of a large set of unresolved issues in this area led to the choice of topic. The purpose of the article is to study the development of the agricultural land market in Ukraine. Methodology. Methods of analysis, comparison and generalization of research results, economic, statistical and graphical methods were used to write the article. The source of data for the scientific research were reports and statistical information of the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine and the State Treasury Service of Ukraine. Results. The study showed that the transformation of land ownership relations in the absence of environmental and economic justification of the redistribution of land and territorial resources has led to significant changes in the composition and structure of agricultural land, as well as the ecological imbalance of the land fund. In turn, this has caused many environmental and economic problems in the domestic system of land use, including: excessive parcellation of land, violation of crop rotations, introduction of monoculture and, as a consequence, deterioration of soil quality, reduction of its fertility, increased erosion and land degradation. It is proved that the development of land and legal system should be based on a multilevel model of state regulation of agricultural land markets, which, in contrast to the existing one, provides for the development of a secondary market, land auctions and mortgages, involvement of unclaimed land into market turnover. Practical implications. Since the practice of managing agricultural enterprises in market conditions shows that the main thing is not the availability of land resources, but the efficient use of their potential, so the need to create a reliable economic mechanism to ensure the efficient use of land resources and the protection of land fertility is a priority. The breadth and versatility of land problems, their connection and dependence on socio-economic, political and environmental factors necessitate further study of this issue.
