To date, in Kazakhstan, 10.3 mln ha of planting areas have been harvested, which is almost 60% of the planned area. Therefore, grain harvest amounted to 9.5 mln tonnes, including 6.9 mln tonnes of wheat, the press service of the Ministry of Agriculture reported.
Despite unfavorable weather conditions, the expected grain harvest will be enough to fully supply Kazakhstan with bread, flour, and pasta, the Ministry of Agriculture believes. The country has a large volume of high-quality grain from last year's harvest.
“The export potential will decrease due to the reduction in productivity, but the country will retain its positions on traditional export markets,” the Ministry of Agriculture is confident.
