This paper outlines the goals and objectives of an integrated assessment of the competitiveness of agricultural production, presents a general approach to the development and implementation of a methodology for such an assessment, and suggests a specific procedure that can be used to assess the competitiveness of regions of Kazakhstan. The relevance of the topic of the article is related to the insufficient study of the assessment of agriculture in the regions of Kazakhstan and Asia, the lack of developed monitoring systems for its condition. However, the development of rural agriculture is impossible without an effective update agricultural potential for agricultural enterprises. The purpose of this article is to study methods for assessing the competitiveness of agriculture and their application for a particular region of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The main objective of the proposed analysis and assessment of the level of competitiveness is to determine the competitive advantages of agricultural production located in a certain geographical area. An assessment of the competitiveness of agriculture should be considered in the context of two of its phases (region's resource potential (RRP), results of agriculture in the region (RAR)), taking into account their composite structures. Therefore, the assessment of the competitiveness of agriculture was carried out for the Northern regions of Kazakhstan for 2006-2015. The authors found that special attention should be given to the effective use of resource potential. It has been found that Akmola, Kostanay and North Kazakhstan regions agriculture has higher resource potential than agriculture in Pavlodar region, however, regions do not use their resource potential to the full extent.
