  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   KZ2022-0019

On September 13, Kazakhstan announced the end of wheat and wheat flour export restrictions that had been in effect since April 14, 2022. Since the restrictions went into effect, Kazakhstani exporters utilized 83 percent of the wheat and 66 percent of the wheat flour export quotas. Initial reports of a good fall grain harvest helped the government decide to end the export restrictions. According to official Ministry press releases, as of September 13, almost 70 percent of Kazakhstan’s grain crops have been harvested with yields so far estimated to be at least 30 percent higher than last year.
