The June edition of the JRC MARS bulletin – Global outlook for Kazakhstan shows average yield prospects for spring and winter cereals.
The sowing campaign of spring cereals - which in Kazakhstan are more important than winter cereals - was completed in time in early June. Despite the prevailing dry weather conditions in the most important producing regions crops have established well. However, more rain is needed soon to sustain the yield potential.
Yield expectations for winter cereals are slightly above the 5-year average. They present average development and growth, sustained mainly by adequate, although irregular, rainfall during the growing cycle.
Canopy conditions as observed by satellite
Satellite observations of the NDVI vegetation indicator on arable land mainly show average conditions (yellow colours on the map) in the South, North and partially in the East of Kazakhstan. In the Northwest, abundant precipitation favoured above-average crop biomass accumulation, as reflected in the green colours on the map.
We need your help: JRC MARS Bulletins Survey
The JRC MARS Bulletins Survey aims to collect information to better understand how you use the JRC MARS Bulletin. This will help us to improve our service in the future. Completion of the survey should take less than 10 minutes of your time. All information collected will be anonymous - no personal information is requested.
The survey is available at 2022 JRC MARS Bulletin - Crop Monitoring in Europe Survey
The latest information about global agricultural production hotspots for countries at risk of food insecurity is available on the JRC’s ASAP (Anomaly hot Spots of Agricultural Production) site.
