Slow Kazakh Grain Exports Fuel Storage Fears

Rail wagons have proved to be a severely limiting factor for Kazakhstani farmers. The country is facing a dilemma as it has been unable to export its grain and has cut the amount of exports from 15 million tonnes to 11-12 million tonnes. Kazakhstan had a record harvest last year of 27 million tonnes but uses only about 11 million tonnes domestically. “Delays in sourcing rail cars” proved to be the main issue preventing the country from exporting its excess grain and now the government is investigating elevator construction, subsidizing exports, and rail expansion to nearby China as potential solutions to the problem.–4409.html
