Domestic enterprises of the agricultural sector in practice constantly feel the lack of financial resources for the reconstruction of fixed and current assets, the implementation of innovation, the use of new resource-efficient low-cost and environmentally sound technologies, which in a competitive environment are impossible for their effective functioning.

The specifics of the agrarian sector of Ukraine causes the objective necessity of its urgently providing of investment resources; without an increasing in their volume the way out of the deep socio-economic crisis is quite problematic.

We have to admit that the actual amount of investment in the agricultural sector of the economy of our country compared with the required is not enough. Therefore first of all need to be resolved issues of attracting investment to Ukraine amounts of investment resources.

Conclusions. In our opinion, Ukraine needs a more active introduction of modern, environmentally friendly, low-cost and resource-saving technologies by national and foreign investors.

For foreign investors the level of investment attractiveness of the agricultural sector is heavily dependent on cheap labor and the possibility of exports to foreign markets. To convince investors of the need to finance the agricultural sector of Ukraine is necessary to reduce domestic investment risks.

To ensure the reliability of the investment partnership is necessary to see in the contracts, not only the volume of investment, but also events to protect them. If an investor has applied all the necessary permits should be fill in a short time.
