Land in Mekarsari Sub Dictrict could be classified as the swampy land. Swampy land was used as the rice field. The objectives of research was to evaluate the land suitability for rice field, and to analyze the farmers effort to overcome land limitation in Mekarsari Sub-district. Land unit map was used as the sampling location of research. Number of land unit was 36 unit. Land unit was earned from map overlay, i.e. landform map, landuse map, slope map, and soil map. The result of research showed that Mekarsari area was classified as suitable (S2), with the area was 143.50 Km2. The limitation factor of land suitablity was temperature, cation exchange capacity, and drainage. The farmers efforts to decrease the land limitation were using the Banjar system, such as preparing the seed in early wet season, and using the fertilizer to increase the cation exchange capacity.
