Kazakhstan’s grain harvest seen by SovEcon as below the forecast

Новость на Казах-зeрно:

Kazakhstan may harvest less than the 13 million metric tons of grains forecast by the Kazakh government this year, the Moscow-based researcher SovEcon said on its website today.

Kazakh farmers harvested 8.7 million tons of grain from nearly 70 percent of the area sown as of today, and average yield reached 0.8 ton a hectare (2.47 acres), SovEcon said, citing Kazakhstan’s Agriculture Ministry data.

Kazakhstan forecast the harvest at about 13 million tons for 2012-13, down from a record 26 million tons last year, SovEcon said. “This forecast becomes less real as the harvesting continues and approaches its end,” SovEcon said.
