The Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine has announced that 26,898 land agreements have been registered in Ukraine.

As of today, 26,898 agreements have been concluded within the land market. There was a total of 5,742 applications, of which 5,073 were approved, 7 were in the queue for consideration, and 662 were rejected. Until 2024, only Ukrainian citizens of Ukraine can purchase land with a limit of 100 hectares of agricultural land. The law on the land market prohibits foreigners from buying land.

Land reform in Ukraine needs to be improved.

On the 100-day anniversary of the land market, Ukrainian legislation lacks the last important link that will improve access to credit for small and medium farmers. For all Ukrainians to benefit from land reform, the Verkhovna Rada needs to pass a law on the Partial Guarantee Fund for Agriculture. Farmers want to protect their existing infrastructure investments, get working capital to grow their business.
