Techno-ecological agriculture seeks to combine the strengths of ecological agriculture with technologically advanced agriculture, so that a more productive, efficient and quality agricultural model with less risk and environmentally friendly will be formed. Population growth will encourage people to open new agricultural lands, causing a decrease in the carrying capacity of agricultural land. The objectives of this study are (1) to analyze land use changes in the city of Padang in 2007 and 2019, (2) to analyze the benefits of the techno-ecological agricultural model in determining the capacity of land in the city of Padang, (3) to calculate the carrying capacity of land for food as a result of its application. Techno-ecological agricultural model in Padang City. This study uses an approach, namely a quantitative descriptive approach, with these variables concerning changes in land use, land capability and carrying capacity of agricultural land for food crops. The population in this study were all areas in the city of Padang consisting of 11 districts, while the sample was areas that were only planted with rice. The results of the study describe (1) The change in paddy fields occurred from 2007 covering an area of 7,266,815 hectares, while in 2019 it decreased to 5,263,489 hectares. (2) Land capability for class III covering an area of 1,399.85 ha, Class IV covering an area of 21,870.08 ha, Class VI covering an area of?? 4,048.8, and class VII covering an area of 41,051.37 ha, (3) Carrying capacity of food land for rice fields in Padang City produces a value of 0.051 which is included in class III, which means that the city of Padang is an area that has not been able to do food self-sufficiency.
