Kazakhstan, Astana, August 17 / Trend, S.Suleymanov /
Kazakhstan this year can really harvest grain at the level of 11.5 million tons, Kazakh National Company Food Contract Corporation Commercial Affairs Managing Director Daulet Uvashev said in an interview with Trend.
"Kazakhstan this year can really harvest grain at the level of 11.5 million tons. These are data of the United States Department of Agriculture, which usually gives accurate forecasts," Uvashev said.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Agriculture of Kazakhstan has forecasted that expects harvest at 14 - 15 million tons in 2010.
In fact, if we add last year's crop remains in the amount of 3,2 million tons to the forecasts of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, it turns out that the republic's granaries will have 14-15 million tons of grain," Uvashev said.
