The article presents GIS for assessing the agricultural potential of the Polissya of Ukraine, the use of which allowed for the territorial differentiation of soil cover by the presence of particularly valuable soil groups, to establish the value of the overall assessment, as well as the assessment of the potential of growing winter wheat and potatoes.

Developed on the basis of the developed GIS complex of mapping schemes assessment of soil potential of Polissya Ukraine, allowed to locate territories with the highest values.

According to the List of especially valuable soil groups, the place of significant distribution of especially valuable soil groups of national and regional importance was established and territorially separated on the map. It is shown that the main agricultural potential of the study area is concentrated in the Central and Left Bank Polissya. The largest areas of soil with a score of 37 to 57 points and above are concentrated in the central and eastern parts of  Polissya, which indicates the significant investment potential of these territories.

According to the results of the arable land bonitet scale, maps with accurate depictions of Polissya districts, which are most suitable for winter wheat and potato cultivation, were constructed.
