The Kherson region is one of the main Ukrainian agricultural production regions - APK-Inform




The Kherson region, which is currently suffering from the consequences of the destruction of the Kakhovka HPP, is one of the main regions that form an important share of agricultural production in Ukraine. This is evidenced by the infographic prepared by the analysts of IA APK-Inform.

In particular, in 2021, the share of the Kherson region in the total greenhouse agricultural produce in Ukraine was more than 21%, industrial crops - more than 5%, grains and pulses - more than 4%.
At the same time, around 58% of the irrigated grain areas were concentrated in the Kherson region.
We note that the available official information allows us to estimate the share of the agricultural sector of the Kherson region in the total Ukrainian production only based on the results of the 2021, which became a record year for the production of grain and oil crops. Unfortunately, due to the occupation of part of the region and constant hostilities, up-to-date information on agricultural production in the region after the Russian invasion is not available.
