From January to December 2021, rice production across Kazakhstan increased by 5.7% year-on-year to 210,700 tonnes.

It is reported that this year rice production could see a very significant decrease. According to Khabar24, the drop in water levels in Syrdarya has resulted in less irrigation water flowing into the Kyzylorda region and a reduction of 11,000 hectares of rice cultivation.

The share of imports rose to 4.7%. Imports of rice were 3,500 tonnes, up 76.6% year-on-year. At the same time, exports fell by 28.9% to 28,700 tonnes. Sales to the domestic market rose by 41.7% year-on-year to 46,400 tonnes.

According to the January-April data, all of Kazakhstan exported 29,100 tonnes of rice, with exports amounting to US$11 million. Physical exports decreased by 29.1% and the value of exports decreased by 5.6%.

The majority of Kazakhstan's rice was exported to the CIS countries: 27.2 thousand tons and the value of exports amounted to 9.9 million USD. The largest amount of rice was exported to Russia: 14,000 tonnes, an increase of 70.6%. Tajikistan and Ukraine also ranked in the top three.

Kazakhstan exported 1,900 tonnes of rice to non-CIS countries, up 81% on the same period last year. Mongolia, Iraq and Turkey in were the main export destination countries.
