Lamidi Lamidi, Santun RP Sitorus, Bambang Pramudya, Kursatul Munibah


Serang changed administratively in very short time from just sub district town to be capital city of Banten Province in 2000, and to be autonomous city in 2007.  The region development is also changed from rural development with agriculture oriented to be urban development with industries and trade oriented.  This means that the existing technical irrigated rice fields will be converted to non-agricultural land.   This research aims to study the land used change of rice fields in Serang City from 1993 to 2016, divided into three time intervals are 1993-2000, 2000-2007, and 2007-2016.  Land used change is analyzed by overly method between land use map at t0 and t1.  The result shows that the biggest land use change is from rice field to settlement and agro forest.  The annual land use change in the time interval of 1993-2000 is biggest (265.14 Ha) than 2000-2007 (90.43 Ha) and 2007-2016 (91.67 Ha).
