Ukraine is renowned as the breadbasket
of Europe thanks to its black soils ( Chernozem black
because of the high organic matter content) which offer
exceptional agronomic conditions. One-third of the worldwide
stock of the fertile black soils, which cover more than half
of Ukraine s arable land, a large variety of climatic zones,
and favourable temperature and moisture regimes, offers
attractive conditions for the production of a large range of
crops including cereals and oilseeds. Ukraine s proximity to
large and growing neighbouring markets the Russian
Federation and the European Union and access to deep sea
ports at the Black Sea, provide direct access to world
markets, especially large grain importers in the Middle East
and North Africa.
