Kazakhstan: Grain and Feed Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Kazakhstan’s 2014 grain harvest is lower than last year, with the FAS/Astana estimate for wheat production at 13.0 million metric tons (MMT), down from last year’s 13.9 MMT. FAS/Astana estimates wheat exports in the 2014/15 marketing year at 6.0 MMT, down 1.5 MMT from last year but still far below the levels of 2011/12 of nearly 12 MMT. Delays in harvesting, and onset of rain and snow during the harvest resulted in lower production figures and high moisture content. These factors are also expected to negatively impact Kazakhstan’s exports.
