Pie chart description

Pie chart description

Each slice represents a country's share of total AMIS production (5-year average). Main producing countries (representing 90 percent of production) are shown individually, with the remaining 10 percent grouped into the “Other AMIS Countries” category. The proportion within each national slice is colored according to the crop conditions within a specific growing area; grey indicates that the respective area is out of season. Sections within each slide are weighted by the sub-national production statistics (5-year average) of the respective country. The section within each national slice also accounts for multiple cropping seasons (i.e. spring and winter wheat). When conditions are other than "favorable", icons are added that provide information on the key climatic drivers affecting conditions. For more information, please visit GEOGLAM.

  • In Brazil, conditions for the summer-planted crop (larger) are mixed as hot and dry conditions have begun affecting the crop, most notably in the southern region. In addition, there is a reduction in total sown area this season.
  • In Argentina, conditions remain poor across the country as harvest progresses. Prolonged drought throughout the season has taken its toll on the crops, while continuous rains over the past month hampered harvest and affected grain quality in the Pampa Plain. Yields and total production are expected to be significantly reduced compared to the previous year.
  • In the US, sowing is continuing under favourable conditions with only minor delays in the Midwest due to a late spring. Crop emergence has begun in many areas.
  • In Canada, sowing is nearing completion, but additional rainfall is needed to support crop development.
  • In Mexico, harvest of the autumn-winter planted crop has begun under favourable conditions. Sowing of the spring-summer crop continues under favourable conditions with a slight increase in sown area expected.
  • In China, the spring-planted crop is in the early vegetation stage under favourable conditions.
  • In the EU, favourable weather is aiding sowing especially in the southern countries.
