The quality of Karaganda wheat has also improved, he notes.
“Karaganda wheat was famous for its gluten content in the past. In good years, its percentage reached 40%. This year, the result is quite good – 25% or higher. This was facilitated by the fact that they produced their own varieties, a lot of work was done by breeders in due time. Today, Karaganda wheat is exported and consumed on the domestic market, ” K.
