Трудовые соревнования сотрудников АО “Атамекен-Агро”: стимулы и достижения.

The sowing campaign has ended in the fields of Atameken-Agro JSC. The management of the agricultural holding uses a special motivation system to increase the efficiency of employees during field work. Thus, every sowing and harvesting season, labor competitions are held between employees of subsidiaries.  

Главными целями соревнований в АО “Атамекен-Агро” являются: мотивация работников, повышение производительности труда, укрепление трудовой дисциплины, совершенствование профессиональной подготовки, достижение высоких производственных показателей. 

In the past spring season, workers directly involved in sowing work took part in the competition. The criterion for determining the best employee in the competition is the percentage of exceeding the production norm. Atameken-Agro JSC has developed a clear algorithm for evaluating results so that all competitions are as transparent and fair as possible. The best employees are determined based on the results of the week, month and entire season in each subsidiary. At the end of the season, the winner of the labor competition is chosen and declared a leader in production. But that’s not all: based on the results of work performed for both seasons (spring and autumn), the agricultural holding determines the best employee of the year. The winners of the labor competition are celebrated in a solemn atmosphere.

At each stage of the competition, to further motivate employees, financial rewards are given to the winners. The winners of the work week, month and leading production workers are awarded bonus certificates for first, second and third place. 

Based on the results of the spring stage of labor competitions in 2023, the following particularly distinguished themselves: 

Harrowing: Kantarov Asylbek Malgozhdarovich, Gabdulin Amirzhan Galymzhanovich, Zaidel Alexander Vladimirovich, Listopadniy Kirill Vladimirovich. 

Chemical processing: Rykov Gennady Fedorovich, Esekeev Sattar Ashimovich, Leonov Nikolay Petrovich, Plindik Igor Vyacheslavovich. 

Sowing with fertilizer application: Dyachenko Nikolay Vladimirovich, Ryazantsev Andrey Vladimirovich, Bernikov Alexander Alexandrovich, Kuznetsov Oleg Arkadyevich. 

Seeding: Yakovenko Sergey Evgenievich, Sharkevich Vasily Vasilyevich, Garkusha Evgeny Ivanovich, Telekeev Marat Tolospaevich, Mutalapov Seilkhan Meirmanovich, Gizdetdinov Aizat Fazylovich, Press Sergey Alekseevich. 

Таким образом, соревнования между сотрудниками агрохолдинга АО “Атамекен-Агро” играют важную роль в стимулировании работников, повышении производительности труда и улучшении производственных показателей.

Changes in the Board of Directors of Atameken-Agro JSC


On June 2 of this year, an extraordinary meeting of shareholders of Atameken-Agro JSC was held, dedicated to a partial change in the composition of the Board of Directors of the agricultural holding. At the request of independent director Dauren Askarovich Sabdenov for early resignation from the Board of Directors of the Company, a vote was held among shareholders, as a result of which his powers were removed. 


Inkar Abibullaevna Tyurekhodjaeva was nominated as a new candidate for membership in the Board of Directors of Atameken-Agro JSC. This person acts as a representative of Problem Loan Fund JSC. By voting, it was decided to elect Inkar Abibullaevna Tyurekhodzhaeva to the position of member of the Board of Directors of Atameken-Agro JSC.


The third decision adopted at the general meeting of shareholders of Atameken-Agro JSC was the establishment of a new date for the termination of the powers of the Member of the Board of Directors of Atameken-Agro JSC. The set date was September 30, 2025.

Lentil production. Trends and prospects.

Atameken-Agro JSC considers lentil production in Kazakhstan to be one of the most promising areas of agriculture.

Despite the fact that most of the acreage in the structure of the leading Kazakh agricultural holding is occupied by grain crops, the management of Atameken-Agro JSC is convinced that Kazakhstan needs and can move away from monoculture farming. The company actively monitors global trends and strives to diversify production by increasing the share of legumes. In particular, lentils. Compared to wheat, legumes have higher margins, they saturate the soil with valuable nitrogen and, in general, their cultivation reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which has a beneficial effect on the environment. 

According to market experts, global consumption of legumes may increase to 116.8 million tons per year by 2031 (from 99.7 million tons in 2022). Despite the fact that today the consumption of legumes exceeds their production by 8.26 million tons per year.

Crop farms that are part of Atameken-Agro began growing lentils back in 2014, clearly understanding where the market situation was heading. Today, lentils and another crop, peas, dominate legume production in Kazakhstan. This was announced by the Chairman of the Board of Atameken-Agro JSC Kintal Islamov at the international conference “Asia Grain Conference”, which was held in Almaty in the spring.

Moreover, in recent years, the trend has led to a reduction in pea production in Kazakhstan in favor of lentils. This happens because this crop is more resistant to dry conditions than peas. In addition, according to the head of Atameken-Agro, a more significant reason for the increase in lentil acreage is its good margins.

– В 2022 году мы произвели гороха 7,4% от всего валового сбора в Казахстане. При этом чечевицы – практически 19,9% от всего валового сбора, – отметил К. Исламов. – В 2021-2022 годах посевные показатели чечевицы росли.

According to the holding, today the main markets for peas are Afghanistan and Uzbekistan. Kazakh lentils go to Turkey.

Seeing the prospects for growing lentils, Atameken-Agro JSC is currently considering the construction of a plant for processing this crop. This will not only help Kazakhstan improve its own food security, but will also make it one of the important players in the export market of pulses in Central Asia.

Что касается двух других бобовых культур, выращиваемых в Казахстане, – нута и фасоли – то их производство не так интересно компании, как чечевица. Причин тут несколько: основными производителями и экспортерами этих культур являются соседние страны (к примеру, Узбекистан); стоимость нута ниже более перспективной чечевицы, а опыт производства фасоли в Казахстане еще сравнительно мал. К тому же, климатические условия не всегда позволяют ее выращивать: она влаго- и теплолюбивая. В связи с этим, площади нута были компанией сокращены. 

По словам К. Исламова, производство чечевицы в Казахстане имеет все перспективы для того, чтобы стать важной культурой для экономики страны. Главные задачи – расширение подходящих рынков сбыта и удобных логистических цепочек.
