In recent years, the growth of grain production in Kazakhstan has outstripped its consumption PDF Print E-mail

As it was previously reported, as of November 1, grain reserves in Kazakhstan were still higher than last year. As of November 1, 2017, the amount of grain in the bins of the republic was 1,168,179 tons higher than in the same period of the previous year. Looking deeper, developing the topic, we found out that this is not a special case, but a persistent tendency. From year to year, grain reserves in Kazakhstan are growing. It becomes obvious that the consumption of these products, both domestically and for export purposes, has stopped or its growth lags behind the growth of cereals production. The worst case for this market is the drop in total consumption against a background of increased harvests.

And the growth of grain yields in Kazakhstan is obvious. Of course, abundant and not very high yields periodically alternate. But on average they are inexorably growing. The increased experience of grain producers, which are implementing on an increasingly large scale advanced, more productive technologies for growing crops, processing and storage, are doing their job. Considering the average annual yield for 5 years, we will get the averaged figures, which indicate the growth of the productivity of grain production. Efficiency grows due to increased yield, because as a result of diversification of crop areas, the acreage under crops does not grow, and for some crops, especially for wheat crops, they fall.

From 2008 to 2016 the average annual yield of grain crops increased by 1,761.05 thousand tons from 15,676.6 to 17,437.65 thousand tons or by 11.2%. The average yield for the same period increased by 1.6 quintals per hectare from 11.7 q / ha in 2008 to 13.3 q / ha in 2016 or by 13.7%, - reports the IA “Kazakh-Zerno”.
