Kazakhstan: Grain and Feed Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

FAS/Astana estimates wheat production in Kazakhstan in MY 2018/2019 at 13.98 million metric tons (MMT), 0.8 MMT lower than estimated for MY 2017/2018, as unusually cold spring, which caused delayed planting, insufficient rains during vegetation period and rains during harvesting time have badly affected production outlook. The new Post forecast for MY19/20 wheat production is 14 MMT. FAS/Astana forecasts Kazakhstani barley production in MY 2018/2019 at 3.9 MMT, just 0.6 million tons higher from last year. The temporary shortage of grain hoppers during October-November had resumed by December 2018.
