Purpose –The purpose of this paper is to determine strategies in controlling over the function of paddy field in Central Java. Design/methodology/approach – Purposive sampling was employed by having 12 people interviewed. Analytical hierarchy process was used to determine a strategy related to policy control toward agricultural land conversion. Findings – The results indicated priorities which are recommended to include in the policy toward the function of the land conversion in Central Java. They are: first, the application of laws that regulate land conversion mechanism; second, tightening or restricting and prohibiting rules for anyone who wants to change the function of agricultural land; and finally, zoning or clustering region based on urban spatial and land use. Research limitations/implications – This study suggests that the government is expected to invest directly for agriculture and plantation by avoiding the use of existing rice field. Practical implications – It is also advisable for government to utilize the available unused land. Originality/value – This paper captures factual condition of the decrease of the land use for agriculture which has been very critical issues in any agrarian countries. This is essential to know the core of the problem and possible solutions for similar case in other typical nations.
