ASTANA. November 6. KAZINFORM /Muratbek Makulbekov/ "The wheat rate at the crop acreage increased by 70%", Chairman of "KazAgro" National Holding" JSC Asylzhan Mamytbekov has said in his speech at the parliamentary hearings on "Tasks on industrialization of the agro-industrial complex and measures on effective use of budget funds" today. He noted that the wheat rate was about 40% in 1990, and increase of the rate leads to the domestic crop raising to dependence on the world prices. "In this regard, it becomes necessary to diversify the agrarian production through the development of cattle breeding. The cattle breading will allow to resolve many social problems as well, as long as it provides year-round employment of rural people, create new jobs and improve their profitability", A.Mamytbekov said.
