The condition and efficiency of land use is a determining factor in ensuring the balanced development of the agro-industrial complex, nature management, as well as environmental and food security of the country. The priority areas for ensuring sustainable development of the agro-industrial complex include the fight against deforestation; rational use of vulnerable ecosystems with desertification and drought; creation of compensating sites with forest vegetation; greening of land use through the new optimal planning of agrolandscapes.

The methodological and theoretical basis of the study is the studies and works of leading domestic and foreign scientists, materials of scientific and practical conferences of various levels in the field of protective afforestation and agroforestry. The information base for the study is the regulatory legal acts (the Forest Code, a number of federal laws, orders of the Federal Forestry Agency, etc.) that govern issues on the problem under study.

As a result of the research, an assessment of the state of protective forest plantations in the Russian Federation is given, potential advantages of using protective forest plantations in the agricultural sector are identified, the role of the state in solving environmental and social problems on this issue is determined.

State measures are proposed to solve the problems of increasing the efficiency of the use of protective forest plantations in the agro-industrial complex, including the transfer of protective forest plantations to the ownership of agricultural enterprises and farms with mandatory responsibility for their proper maintenance and preservation.
