Kazakhstan: Grain and Feed Annual
Planting strategy in Kazakhstan for marketing year (MY) 2021/22 is expected to be similar to the previous year. To date, climate conditions for the 2021/22 marketing year have been mixed. Farmers’ spring planting decisions will be predominantly influenced by economic factors. Given these factors, FAS Nur-Sultan expects MY 2021/22 grain production to be consistent with MY 2020/21. Post continues to estimate MY 2020/21 production at approximately 13.2 million metric tons (MMT). Both domestic food and feed consumption remain stable, which means that any growth in wheat and barley production would likely translate into a growth in MY2021/22 exports.
