The prospect of a price rise for wheat in 2013 makes farmers believe that the increase in prices for grain will help to cover loans and the costs of planting. But not all farmers will be able to use this opportunity, the correspondent of IA “Kazakh-Zerno” said.
According to farmers, Kiyaly, Tselinnyi and Smirnovsky elevators are completely full with grain. Mamlyutsky elevator enters into contracts for the acceptation of no more than 100-200 tons.
Previously, our agency told about workload, in particular, of these elevators, by public food stocks. Officials in the summer assured that planned shipments will allow freeing up the place at grain enterprises for the new crop.
“Those who have their own storage room – are lucky. Those who do not, have to rush in order to sell a new crop, without waiting for the best prices for bread, “- says farmers.
Farmers with loans also do not count on future price increase, because of debts they need to cover right now. The rest of the farmers will wait for the end of grain purchase by Food Corporation.
