07.03.2018

Kazakhstan supplied 175.8 KMT of barley to foreign markets in December 2017. This is the largest volume since MY 2014/15 and 13.7% more than in December 2016.

Total barley exports from Kazakhstan in September-December 2017/18 reached 553.7 KMT. This is half as much again as at the same time in MY 2016/17 (355.6 KMT), reports UkrAgroConsult.

In the first four months of MY 2017/18 the top three importers of Kazakh barley included Iran, Uzbekistan and Afghanistan. It is worth noting that the combined volume exported to these countries at the time reached as much as 550.2 KMT against 627.9 KMT for the entire 2016/17.
