By the end of the first decade of August, a massive harvesting campaign in Kazakhstan was launched in 7 regions. In the south of Kazakhstan, the harvesting campaign began a long time ago and is moving to the north of the republic. Back in the first 10 days of July, the First Vice-Minister of Agriculture Aidarbek Saparov announced that harvesting of winter crops had begun in Zhambyl and Turkestan regions.

As of August 10, mass harvesting of grain crops has been launched in Aktobe, Almaty, East Kazakhstan, Zhambyl, West Kazakhstan, Kyzylorda and Turkestan regions. In total, it is planned to occupy 2,488.9 thousand hectares for grain crops this year in these regions, which is 63.6 thousand hectares more than last year. The largest area for grain among 7 regions is in East Kazakhstan region at 579.9 thousand hectares. This region started cleaning earlier than last year.

As of August 10, a total of 929.4 thousand hectares were harvested, or 37.3% of the planned area. The harvesting campaign is going ahead of schedule. Last year, 30.5% of the plan was removed. Zhambyl region advanced farthest in harvesting grain crops at 95.5% and Turkestan region at 73.8% of the plan. More than half of the plan is threshed in West Kazakhstan region.

By this period in 2019, 1,411.2 thousand tonnes of grain in bunker weight were threshed. This year, 361.7 thousand tonnes more grain or 1,772.9 thousand tonnes were harvested due to the larger threshing area. The average grain yield in these regions has not changed since last year and amounted to 19.1 quintals per hectare. In different regions, the yield was both higher and lower than the average.

The highest yield among 7 regions is in Zhambyl region. It increased from 21 q/ha in 2019 to 21.9 q/ha in 2020. The yield increased in Aktobe region from 5.5 to 8.7 q/ha, in West Kazakhstan region from 10.5 to 15 q/ha. The yield decreased in the Almaty region from 19.2 to 17.5 q/ha, in Kyzylzhar region from 17.4 to 15.6 q/ha and in Turkestan region from 20.4 to 20.3 q/ha.
