Kazakhstan - Russia: struggle for Iranian market


The 2015/16 grain season is coming to an end in Kazakhstan (September 2015-August 2016). High exports of basic grain crops and flour, as UkrAgroConsult already mentioned in the previous article “Black Sea flour conquers world" was the main feature of the 2015/16 marketing year in Kazakhstan, as well as in Ukraine and in Russia. However, in case of Kazakhstan, grain shipments did not reach all-time high, but still became the highest since 2011/12.

UkrAgroConsult estimates that in season 2015/16 Kazakhstan increased grain exports by 31% compared to last season, including flour in grain equivalent. Certainly, wheat and wheat flour were the major export commodities, but only barley shipments set a new record.
