Abstract
In the Republic of Lithuania the average land productivity score is about 41.8. However, in separate elderates it ranges from 30.5 to 55.1. As a result, it determines different intensity of using agricultural farming lands. Research object - agricultural farming lands in rural municipalities of the republic of Lithuania. Aim of the research – identify the intensity of using Lithuanian agricultural farming lands for agriculture. The following objectives were raised to reach the aim of the research: - analyse statistical data by identifying the index of unused lands; - analyse statistical data by identifying the index of extensive land use. The research determined that the index of unused land in districts of northern Lithuania hilly uplands is 59 % higher than the average of Lithuania. In the area of Western Lithuania the index of extensive farming was identified as it is in North-East Lithuania. However, the index of unused land within the area is 32 % lower than the mean in Lithuania. It was identified that the correlation coefficient between land production score and that of unused land was 0.58 while it is 0.57 between land production score and extensive farming.
