StateGeoCadastre inventories 500,000 ha of state-owned land in 2021

KYIV. Jan 5 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The State Service of Ukraine for Geodesy, Cartography and Cadastre (StateGeoCadastre), as part of a government program for checking state-owned land, carried out an inventory of 500,000 hectares of land in 2021 and entered information about them into the State Land Cadastre, the service’s website says.

As noted, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine approved an action plan for land inventory and updating the cartographic basis of the State Land Cadastre for 2021 only in November last year.

"Despite the tight schedule, we managed to make an inventory of half a million hectares of state-owned land and enter information about them in the State Land Cadastre. The main objects are agricultural, forestry and defense land plots," the StateGeoCadastre said in a statement.

The leaders in the state land inventory were Odesa (48,900 hectares), Zakarpattia (47,300 hectares), Zhytomyr (46,000 hectares), Ternopil (44,300 hectares), Zaporizhia (35,600 hectares) and Kirovohrad (32,400 hectares) regions.

As reported, Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food Roman Leschenko said in May 2021 that out of 60.4 million hectares of the total area of Ukraine, 41.3 million hectares are cultivated, of which 33.1 million hectares are occupied with arable land, 5.3 million – with pastures, 2.3 million – for hay, and 850,000 hectares – for perennial plantings.
