Kazakhstan: Grain and Feed Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   KZ2022-0004

This report contains FAS-Nur-Sultan’s production estimates for MY2021/22 and trade estimates for MY2022/23. Post forecasts no significant change to wheat planted area for MY2022/23. While the government announced agricultural credit and subsidy policies to increase production, grain producer contacts were pessimistic about the upcoming planting season, given last year’s dry conditions and this winter’s reduced snow cover in several grain producing regions. In response to civil unrest in January, the government announced new measures to protect domestic food security, boost producer incomes, and control domestic food inflation. Kazakhstani grain exports during MY2021/22 to China remained low due to pandemic-related transportation restrictions.
