500 thousand tons of grain will be transported from northern oblasts to western and southern regions, Tengrinews.kz reports. This is a way to free up elevators for the new harvest.
“According to weather forecasts, Kazakhstan will have a rainy fall this year, that is why elevators will be working at full capacity. This will complicate acceptance of the new harvest. 1.7 billion tenge ($11.6 million) have been allocated from the budget to solve this problem and move 500 thousand tons of grain from grain-harvesting regions to no-grain ones,” chairman of the board of Food Contracted Corporation National Company Beibitkhan Kabdrakhmanov said today, August 26.
Food Corporation is planning to sell 1 million tons of grain from the last year’s harvest in the nearest time.
