Kazakhstan oilseeds: the first steps towards implementing the agriculture development program


In the coming years, Kazakhstan’s agriculture will go the way of expanding oilseed plantings and harvests. This is stipulated by the State Agriculture Development Program for 2017-2021. As a reminder, its final targets envisage increasing the nation’s acreage of oilseeds to 3 Ml ha and their production to 3.046 MMT, including due to raising their yield to 1.02 MT/ha. 

Certain effect was already achieved in the first year after the program’s launch. So, at the expense of cereal plantings, the Kazakh oilseed sown area was expanded to a record 2482 Th ha (up more than 17% from the previous year).

When forecasting the 2017/18 oilseed crop, UkrAgroConsult adheres to conservative estimates based on average yields, thereby marking minimum success of Kazakh farmers. If the optimistic scenario comes true, the oilseed sector will likely further strengthen its potential.
