Abstract: It is established that those unused agricultural lands that are owned by agricultural producers but are not currently used for economic reasons are a factor of the competitive advantage of Russia's agrarian economy and can be used under favorable economic conditions. The total volume of unused agricultural land involvement for crops is estimated at about 5% of their total area in the coming years and up to 13% by 2025. The method of assessing the potential is selected on the basis of studying the theoretical bases of land use and practical experience in foreign countries: the USA, the EU and China. With the help of the economic-mathematical model, It was identified a potential increase in production from partial involvement of abandoned lands. It was given the characteristics of institutional and economic constraints to the development of production and the involvement of abandoned land in Russia, taking into account regional specifics.
