  • Wheat prices in Central Asia are showing some signs of stability after months of steady rise, with wholesale prices in Kazakhstan holding steady in March and retail prices remaining stable in Afghanistan. In Tajikistan, however, retail wheat prices continued to increase.

  • The outlook for wheat prices in Kazakhstan remains uncertain, however, as it depends on trends in international markets. In Afghanistan and Tajikistan, food security prospects are also dependent on the upcoming wheat harvests.
