The article gives an assessment of the radiological situation in the agricultural lands of the Bryansk region. A general assessment of the impact of radionuclides on humans immediately after the accident and the situation today is given. Some achievements in the direction of land reclamation are described. It is shown that the average weighted density of contamination with 137Cs has decreased on the average by 75% over the last 30 years on the territories formerly withdrawn from the agricultural turnover, and which are now put back into the turnover by radiological criteria. But, regardless of the general decrease of the radiation exposure, the need to take remediation measures on more than 20% of agricultural lands remains, this applies to natural meadows and pastures. The main measures taken by the executive authorities of the subject to involve "Chernobyl lands" into the turnover of agricultural territories are presented.  Provides statistical data on the territories returned to agricultural land.
