The article is aimed at studying the conceptual foundations of methodology and methodics of evaluation of the soil fertility reproduction processes in the vegetable growing industry sector. It is proposed to evaluate the processes of soil fertility use and reproduction, and hence perfection of the vegetable growing industry, according to the ecological criterion, which was defined as one of the most important in evaluating the level of market perfection of vegetable products. In turn, this criterion is considered in the light of intensity of use and reproduction of soil fertility in the vegetable production and in the formation of prices in the market of vegetable products. All this has determined the methodology of authors’ research, which in the final version is reduced to the calculation of balance between the use of soil fertility, on the one hand, and its reproduction, on the other hand. Methods for definition of ecological risks of the industry together with recommendations on possibility of their reduction, based on the principle of reproduction of soil fertility, are suggested. Implementation of such methodical approach, in contrast to the known, provides an original economic interpretation of the process of use and reproduction of fertility on the basis of data on the features of crops, crop rotation, productivity, fertilizers, taking attention of other agritechnical factors as well.
