The article is devoted to the study of legal aspects of land usage in the current economic environment. It has been found out that in the current economic conditions the aspect of land resources protection is of great importance within the legal regime of land usage, since carelessness to the land leads to the loss of the states land fund, which in turn threatens the food security and stability of the economy in general. Futhermore, it has been found out that ensuring a balance between market needs and the need to preserve the ecosystem must be the main principles for land usage. It was determined that the basis of rational land usage is primarily the focus of legal regulation in this direction. It is concluded that one of the major reasons for the irrational usage of land in Ukraine is the lack of interest of businessmen in creating land management projects, despite the fact that the state provides special levers of influence on unscrupulous land users. The features of Poland's experience regarding the encouragement of land users to rational exploitation through government financial support for such activities were also explored. Also, it is noted that, if the conditions for revising the state budget and determining the sources of financing such expenditures are revised, then such a mechanism can be introduced in Ukraine.
