Ukraine may dole out huge tracts of unused farmland
Not all the government land earmarked for cultivation is zoned as agricultural so the program wouldn’t presumably significantly encroach on the 32.5 million hectares of farmland that the country has.
Ukraine’s government says it has found a solution for doing its part to address food security in a world that will need to produce 1 billion tons more cereal and 270 million tons more meat annually to feed 9 billion mouths by 2050.
