Kazakhstan begins soybean exports to China


By the end of 2016 Kazakhstan plans to export 30 KMT of soybean to China, informs UkrAgroConsult. This became possible due to the Protocol on phytosanitary requirements in terms of soybean supplies which was signed on September, 2 in the framework of Kazakhstan `s visit to G20 in Hangzhou.

Presently, export geography of Kazakh soybean consists of 5 countries. 65% of total soybean exports  are supplied to Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan. Opening of the new market of China can be a good incentive for Kazakh farmers to increase soybean area.

So far, in 2016/17 soybean area remained unchanged compared to the previous season. Soybean crop is gathered from the area of 107 Th ha.
