Features and Prospects of Industry 4.0 in the Agrarian Sector of Ukraine in Wartime: Economic and Accounting Aspects
The agrarian sector of Ukraine is an integral part of the country’s economy. As a result of the war with the Russian Federation, the country’s economic situation is characterized by a decrease in the production output, shutdowns of some industries, and a significant drop in consumption. The main challenges faced by the enterprises are the gaps in logistics supplies, loss of personnel, falling effective demand, loss of significant areas of agricultural land due to temporary occupation, decrease in soil fertility as a result of hostilities, lack of necessary capital and the difficulties in predicting the situation in general. These factors negatively affected the food supply chains and led to their disruption. In wartime, the solution to the problem of the country’s food security is extremely important. Maintaining the sustainability of agribusiness and its competitiveness is a priority task for the state in ensuring food security, supported by the innovative technologies of the Industry 4.0 concept.
