  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   KZ2023-0011

According to government information releases and FAS-Astana contacts, spring grain planting was completed in early June and planting conditions were generally favorable, leading FAS-Astana to estimate no significant change to wheat and barley planted area in MY2023/2024. FAS-Astana estimates wheat production in MY 2023/2024 at 14.0 million metric tons (MMT), 1.0 MMT higher than the original forecast of 13.0 MMT. In April 2023, Kazakhstan implemented a six-month ban on wheat imports by road in response to competition from Russia.
