From review of Professor O. Sadchenko
The role and functions of agricultural land-utilization in our country’s economy can’t be overestimated. The ability to provide people with food and the industry with raw materials fully depends on the land-utilization development and its organization. Therefore, the further land-utilization development should be facilitated by the innovative activity of science that would be able to accumulate and use knowledge, thus obtaining social, economic and other benefits. In this context the reviewed monograph “The innovative paradigm of agricultural land-utilization development under the decentralization: the public aspect” deserves attention.
From review of Professor Olha V. Prokopenko
…This monograph is a valuable contribution to solving the complicated methodological issues of agricultural land utilization development under the conditions of decentralization, it is also a remarkable reference point for the local authorities, executive and self-governing bodies, legal and private bodies, and especially agricultural manufacturers to use in their activities. The practical value of the monograph is in its acquired scientific results, conclusions, and suggestions that can be used further in practical measures to create an innovative basis for agricultural land utilization under the conditions of decentralization. This monograph might become an object of scientific and practical interest for a wide range of readers, scientists and practitioners.
