In the current season, production of vegetables including cabbages, beets, carrots and onions is expected to reach 8.79 million tons, which is by 20% more than the average annual consumption in the country (7.3 million tons). In addition, the expected yield of potatoes will amount to about 23 million tons (consumption - 6 million tons), the press service of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine reported.
Therefore, such harvest will completely meet the demand for these vegetables.
The major producers of vegetables and potatoes in Ukraine are the farmers and private sectors of peasants, their share in the total gross yield numbers 91% (vegetables) and 98% (potatoes).
In addition, as of today, there are four wholesale markets for agricultural products, where Ukrainians can buy fruits and vegetables at affordable prices. They are the "Capital" market (Kyiv), "Shuvar" (Lviv), "Farmer" (Donetsk), "Sich" (Zaporizhya). Other seven markets are being built in Odessa, Kharkiv, Kherson, Rivne, Luhansk and Mykolaiv regions.
