This chapter focuses on the land market in Ukraine by providing a detailed description of land laws. The main objective is twofold: (i) to provide a descriptive analysis of land legislation and policies in Ukraine; and (ii) to investigate how land policies impact the technical efficiency of crop production in Ukraine. The two approaches used to investigate the impact of land policy on the technical efficiency of the Ukrainian crop sector are stochastic frontier analysis and data envelopment analysis. Regions with high technical efficiency are examined in terms of land policies. Leasing is a common practice in Ukraine, and the extent to which agricultural enterprises and state enterprises rent farmland impacts efficiency significantly. The amount of land leased by all types of agricultural enterprises increases technical efficiency, while farming enterprises working rented land decrease technical efficiency.
