Abstract: Mollisols are the primary soils in Ukraine. In order to maintain continued increases in grain production, Ukraine needs to implement conservation tillage and other sustainable land management to reduce soil degradation.

Policies and relevant legislation in Ukraine are also outlined with an aim of providing guidelines and strategies in further implementing appropriate practices for sustainable use of Mollisol resources in the region.
