Grain balance of Kazakhstan exceeds last year’s figure by 1,168,179 tons

As of November 1, grain reserves in Kazakhstan were still higher than last year, although this gap decreased compared with October. But this is due to the different dynamics of the receipt of new grain this and last year with respect to time.

According to the Statistics Agency of the Republic of Kazakhstan, as of September 1, 2017, 6,568,485 tons of grain were stored in the republic, and by October 1, 18,003,512 tons. As a result, in the course of domestic consumption, exports, the arrival of new grain, losses from September 1 to October 1, grain reserves in Kazakhstan increased by 11,435,027 tons, or 2.75 times. On November 1, the amount of grain grew even larger, but the degree of its increase was no longer so great. As of November 1, statistics recorded in Kazakhstan 20,008,473 tons of grain. As a result, from October 1 to November 1, the grain balance increased by 2,004,961 tons or by 11.1%, reports the IA “Kazakh-Zerno”.

Last year, the increase in the volume of grain was much higher in October. But it still preserved the trend of 2017 – grain volume in Kazakhstan has significantly increased this year. As of November 1, 2017, the bins of the republic had 1,168,179 tons more grain than in the same period of the previous year.
