Abstract
<jats:p>The aim of this study was to analyze the current radioecological situation in agriculture in five south-west districts of the Bryansk region, which were exposed to the most radiation influence due to the accident at the Chernobyl NPP. Currently, there are 135 collective farms in the observed areas. The total area of agricultural lands was 266.2 thousand hectares. The area of agricultural lands with 137Cs contamination over 37 kBq/m2 was 244.8 thousand hectares in 2018. The area of arable land, hay fields and pastures located in the zone with a 137Cs soil surface activity in a range of 37–185 kBq/m2 is 135.1 thousand hectares, 185–555 kBq/m2– 88.3 thousan...
