The data obtained as a result of research on the state of the soil cover reflect the General pattern of development of land degradation throughout the territory of farms, due to uncontrolled use of land resources. In the article, the sizes of land shares of farms of the Republic which in our opinion are one of the main reasons of decrease in soil fertility of lands of agricultural purpose are considered. At the moment, there is no current legislation in Azerbaijan that could regulate the consolidation of agricultural land and prevent further unjustified fragmentation of land plots. The author in the work proposes a method of land management on a voluntary basis to carry out land consolidation. The novelty of the work lies in the fact that for the first time on the territory of the Republic to solve the problems associated with the deterioration of soil cover on the lands of farms, it is proposed to consolidate the lands of small farms into larger landholdings. As consolidation of lands in these farms will create for their owners an opportunity to unite the efforts in carrying out Agro complex actions in fight against deterioration of soil fertility.
