The development of rural areas is determined primarily by the natural environment. Abiotic factors such as soil, water and ambient temperature are very significant for agriculture. At the same time, the development of rural areas is conditioned by demographic aspects, structure of settlement, and professional activity of the local people. The main objective of rural land management is improving the spatial structure and the working and living conditions of the rural population in close relation to environmental protection and development of such grounds. In Poland, agricultural development directions include sustainable and organic agriculture. These forms of agriculture are developing intensively with regard to a large need for maintaining high crop yield and at the same time reducing the environmental burden. The production of high quality food is significant, while the highest possible biological equilibrium in the natural environment should be maintained at the same time. This article aims to indicate that the above-mentioned directions of development of rural areas are very important for Poland and they generate many advantages for the natural environment. In addition, a useful procedure in improving the spatial structure is land consolidation process carried out in rural areas. Its main objective is improving the configuration of land giving it an optimum shape. This process has a positive impact on agriculture and the community living in such areas.
