Kazakhstan's MY2004/05 wheat production is forecast at 11.5 million metric tons
Planted area for wheat in MY2004/05 is estimated at 11.5 million hectares including 670,000 hectares of winter wheat. That is 250,000 hectares more than planted in the previous year. Planted wheat was expanded primarily in Akmola (27,000 ha), Kostanay (53,000 ha), North Kazakhstan (47,000 ha) and Aktubinsk (51,000), which are the major grain producing areas of the country. High wheat prices and better returns from last year’s crop have encouraged this expansion. Kazakhstan’s MY2004/05 wheat production is forecast is 11.5 MMT assuming normal weather conditions for the rest of the season. Dry and hot weather during the sowing campaign in some northern regions affected germination on 200,000 hectares. However, specialists consider current crop conditions normal. The winter wheat harvest has started in the south. Average yields in Jambul, Chimkent and Almaty regions are at 2.0-2.5 ton per hectare. However, these regions do not play a significant role in wheat production due to the insignificant area planted (about 700,000 hectares) and poor quality of grain produced. Kazakhstan’s MY2003/04 wheat production was officially reported at 11.5 MMT. However, grain traders and Ministry of Agriculture specialists estimate MY2003/04 wheat production at 500,000 –1.0 MMT less than officially reported. They assume that regional Governors provided higher production results in order to obtain more subsidies for fuel, seeds and farm credits from the Government.
