Relief and agriculture are synchronized with each other, and it is obvious that for the agricultural geography of Bosnia and Herzegovina relief is one of the major conditions that affects different crops. The paper discusses the impact of relief on the development of agriculture in Uskopaljska valley mainly through geographical analysis of hypsometric and slope structure, exposure of sides and relief energy. Analysis of the characteristics of the relief enabled us to extract zones with

Area of Uskopaljska valley is not a homogeneous in respect of topography, slope, temperature and other resource endowments. An effort in this paper is done to explore and understand main relief processes.
