Ukrainian farmers from frontline regions will receive free fertilizers from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). A total of 7,275 tons of fertilizers will be delivered to them, with each farmer receiving approximately 2 tons of urea, according to the "Latifundist."

Over 3,300 farmers from Ukrainian frontline regions will receive free fertilizers from the United States Agency for International Development. The U.S. government, as part of the AGRI-Ukraine initiative, has decided to provide free mineral fertilizers for fieldwork in the 2024/25 season.

The beneficiaries of this assistance will be farmers from frontline areas previously occupied and experienced the effects of warfare. As part of this initiative, Ukrainian farmers will receive up to 7,275 tons of fertilizers. Each farmer approved as a beneficiary of this assistance will receive up to 2 tons of urea, depending on the size of the land they own, the portal reports.

Applications for support are being accepted remotely through the State Agricultural Register (DAR) from June 11 to June 25 until supplies are exhausted.

Free fertilizers will be available to farmers with 12 and 1,236 acres of grain or oilseed crops. This assistance applies to Dnipropetrovsk, Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia, Sumy, Kharkiv, Kherson, and Chernihiv regions.

The beneficiaries will be family farms, individual entrepreneurs, and legal entities. Farmers who cultivate between 12 and 62 acres of land (owned and leased) will receive one ton of fertilizer each. Cultivating between 62 and 1,236 acres can count on two tons of fertilizers.
