According to experts, the demand for Kazakh wheat in traditional export markets is falling due to high costs:
3rd class - $340/ton.
Thus, only Uzbekistan reduced imports of wheat from the Republic of Kazakhstan by 30%, replacing the resulting vacuum with cheaper Russian grain.
The Khabar 24 report notes that the replacement of Kazakhstan’s wheat with Russian is observed in the markets of Afghanistan, Iran, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.
According to Aidarbek Khojanazarov, a deputy of the Mazhilis of the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan, of the 400 billion tenge of subsidies allocated to 270 thousand farmers, these are pennies. The speaker noted: farmers of the Republic of Kazakhstan need long-term money to implement large projects.
According to experts, it is difficult to return to its former positions in grain exports. One of the solutions to the problem is seen to be a reboot of agricultural science in order to avoid crop losses due to weather and increase productivity.
