It is being argued that there will exist high reliance upon agriculture lands and resources as a provider of food for population in coming decades. The increase in urban land, industrial and residential land uses at the expenses of agricultural lands is among the major consequences of population increase. However, the utilization of soil, water, forest and pasture are geared toward extensive and constructive nature. This in turn, dictates the need for the identification of land use capabilities and its allocation to comparable uses. This study aims to determination and evaluation of the environmental characteristics as a prerequisite for optimum agriculture development in Boroojerd. This requires application of 12 indicators as well as the combination of Fuzzy logic and AHP. This study suggests that 38.6% of the study area (658 km2) falls into low compatibility. According to find map, the most appropriate area for agriculture development is located in central part which stretches from north to south.
