Write-up taken from the IRRI's Rice Almanac (2013):


Ukraine, on the Black Sea in Eastern Europe, is a moderately large country with a population of 45.2 million (2011). Ukraine is surrounded by eight other countries, its border with Russia in the east being by far the longest. Land area is 603,550 km2, of which arable land makes up more than half (56%), as most of the country is fertile steppes and plateaus. However, agriculture makes up only 9.6% of GDP and occupies only 10% of the workforce. The climate is temperate continental, with winters varying from mild on the southern coast to cold inland. Rainfall is highest in the west and north. Rice is grown in the southern regions but much is imported. The area under rice, now around 32,500 ha, is only half that before the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991.
