Kazakhstan: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   KZ2022-0008

FAS-Nur-Sultan forecasts no significant change to wheat planted area for MY2022/23. Kazakhstan introduced wheat and wheat flour exports restrictions until June 15, 2022, however the government has made public assurances that it plans to supply regional markets given high wheat prices and production challenges in Ukraine and Russia. The lack of wheat imports from Russia has caused many Kazakhstani flour millers to cease operations. Producer contacts planned to maintain their original planting plans although they remained pessimistic about the upcoming planting season due to supply chain disruptions resulting from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, last year’s dry conditions, and this winter’s reduced snow cover in several grain producing areas. Despite financial transaction challenges, wheat and wheat flour exports to Iran increased five-fold to more than 370,000 metric tons (MT) from September 2021 to February 2022, compared to the same period in 2020-2021.
