Climate change means that agricultural zones are shifting north “by hundreds of kilometers,”

Agriculture Minister Roman Leshchenko said speaking at a farming forum in Kyiv yesterday. “The temperature has risen by more than 1 degree Celsius in 10 years — this has a very serious impact on the agricultural area,” he said. “With such dynamics as today, we can reach a situation where 2/3 of the territory of Ukraine will become a zone of risky agriculture.” As palliative measures, he recommended: irrigation, low till farming and planting of forest windbreaks to minimize erosion.
