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 the US, harvest is underway, and very good yields are expected to drive production up to the second highest on record.
  • In Canada, conditions are favourable, and production is expected to be a record due to increases in area and yield. 
  • In Mexico, spring-planted crop conditions are favourable as harvest commences in some areas. 
  • In the EU, conditions are favourable for central and western Europe, offsetting the impact of the drought in southern Europe. 
  • In Ukraine, harvest wraps up under generally poor conditions due to drought and heat stress during the season in the southern, central, and eastern regions which affected yields. 
  • In India, harvest continues for the Kharif crop with good prospects. 
  • In Brazil, sowing of spring-planted maize continues. In the south, the crop is in the vegetative and reproductive stage and in good condition. A reduction in maize area is expected to benefit higher plantings of soybeans. 
  • In Argentina, favourable conditions continue for sowing in the center of the country with delays in the south due to flooding.
