NUR-SULTAN. KAZINFORM «This year forward purchases have doubled,» Kazakh Agriculture Minister Yerbol Karashukeyev said at today’s Government meeting.

He stressed a multiple rise in inventory cost for agricultural production. To this end, the issue on raising budget crediting up to KZT 140 bln and extra financing of spring sowing and harvesting works by KZT 70 bln is considered.
