Abstract: The support of environmentally sound land management that is adapted to the site-specific ecological conditions is a priority area in the agricultural and rural development policy of the European Union. Although land is an indispensable economic resource and an essential element in the ecological system, so far there is no comprehensive information on land quality in Europe. However, the efficiency of agricultural and rural development policies as well as land-related environmental programs can be enhanced considerably if decisions are based on the analysis of land quality. In order to optimize the utilisation of production potential and environmental services of agriculture and to enhance the competitiveness of European farms, new information on soil resources and land quality and novel approaches of land information management are needed.
