The cultivation of hop disappeared in 5 of the 9 hop-growing regions of Ukraine. In the last few years, the number of operating hops producers in Ukraine has decreased from 60 to 19. The area of ​​plantations has also decreased significantly. If in 1990 plantations area amounted to 7.4 thousand hectares, in 2019 - 0.4 thousand hectares. This was primarily due to factors of market uncertainty, price volatility and lack of government support.
