The export potential of wheat is estimated at 8-9 million tons in Kazakhstan, chairman of the state inspection committee in the agro-industrial complex of the Kazakh Ministry of Agriculture Saktash Khasenov said at a press-conference on Aug. 8.

"The expected gross harvest (harvest of the current year) is about 17 million tons, carryover - 4 million tons, that is, the export potential - 8-9 million tons," Khasenov added.
