After 1989, Czech economy was transformed into free market economy and this brought many changes into agricultural sector. One of the changes was the decline of the volume of agricultural production which caused that many of objects used in agriculture lost their function and were not needed any more. Here begins the origin of agricultural brownfields. There was no interest in this problem for a long period; a bigger attention paid to brownfields started in the context of the Czech Republic entrance into the EU and with the possibility to draw finances for the brownfields’ regeneration from the structural funds of the EU. This article deals with the problematic of agricultural brownfields in the Vysocina Region since there were located 44 brownfields of this type and it is important to know about this and to set up a strategy to solve this problem.Keywords:agricultural brownfield, Vysocina Region, barriers of development, revitalisation
