Abstract: Landscape, as live and pulsating natural and anthropogenic system, experiences complex transformations. The agrarian landscape is determinable as separate anthropogenic landscape functional type. It is the dominant part of the Lithuanian landscape, because agricultural land currently occupies over 60% of the country. The agrarian landscape is mostly affected by human’s agricultural activity and especially apparent transformations are in recent decades. The aim of the work is to disclose causes and problems of agrarian landscape and emissions from agricultural soils transformations, which arise after the restoration of the independence of Lithuania in 1990. Transformations of the agrarian landscape during the period after the restoration of the independence of Lithuania are determined by: a) changes of the property forms, b) market conditions and agricultural overproduction, c) use and extent of EU targeted support for agriculture, d) outcomes of farming activities, e) water management problems, f) social causes, g) climate change and biological invasions. The agrarian landscape in Lithuania is being improved by emerging farming culture, positive changes taking place in the structure of land – increasing sizes of private land and average plot area. Direct and indirect emissions of CO2 equivalent from agricultural land in 2015 decreases accordingly 44 and 49 % to compare with 1990 situation. Management of abandoned lands and unemployed agricultural production buildings regulation, adequate care of drained land and further development of organic farming would let cardinally improve Lithuania’s agrarian landscape. This requires improving the legal bases. It is necessary to uniform the support for agricultural production across the EU
