Description The paper presents the spatial analysis of the changes of permanent grasslands (PG) in the Czech Republic (CR) according data of LPIS (Land parcel identification system). LPIS is geographically very valuable source of agricultural data, which is not very much used, but it has great potential for further geospatial analysis. At first will be showed the differences between the two most important sources of land use data of CR: Cadastre of Real Estate and LPIS, which differ a lot. According LPIS in the all CR grassland between 2008 and 2013 increased 38 ha/day, according Cadastr increased 8 ha/day. Distorting sources of data precludes a detailed understanding of changes and it is possible, that in other areas such as the significant decline in total agricultural land (Cadastr: - 13.3 ha/day) in evidence is also incorrect. LPIS data shows, that in fertile regions are not increase of PG, the biggest gains are at medium altitudes, the municipality with the largest increases of PG are in the region NUTS 3 Tachov, Trhové Sviny, Chrudim. Half the increase of PG are changes from arable land, half are newly registered areas. Interpretation of increase of grassland is extensification of farming in LFA, which is part of the CAP Policy and which is also positive in solving problems with soil degradation and ecological stability.
