  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   KZ2022-0022

FAS-Astana forecasts no significant change to wheat and barley planted area for marketing year (MY) 2022/2023. After production declined due to hot and dry weather last MY, wheat production in MY 2022/2023 rebounded to an estimated 14.5 million metric tons (MMT). Barley production also recovered to an estimated 3.1 MMT. Traders anticipated Kazakhstan would regain the barley, wheat, and wheat flour export market share that it lost last year due to lower production. Exports for these products are expected to reach multi-year highs on strong production and steady demand from importing countries.
