Crop Monitor

Pie chart description

Pie chart description

Each slice represents a country's share of total AMIS production (5-year average). Main producing countries (representing 95 percent of production) are shown individually, with the remaining 5 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 almost complete with a bumper crop in many parts of the country.
  • In Canada, harvest is closing under generally favourable conditions, but with some areas of variable yields due to dry conditions during the season.
  • In Mexico, harvest of the spring-summer crop is ongoing under favourable conditions.
  • In the EU, harvest is almost complete with overall EU yields remaining above the five-year average owing to favourable to exceptional conditions in southern Europe.
  • In Ukraine, harvest is wrapping up with record yields in the central and western regions.
  • In India, sowing of the Rabi crop is progressing under favourable conditions.
  • In Brazil, the spring-planted crop is developing under favourable conditions in the main producing regions, an increase in total sown area expected.
  • In Argentina, sowing is complete for the spring-planted crop under favourable conditions with recent rainfall improving soil moisture conditions. Sowing of the summer-planted crop is just beginning.
  • In South Africa, sowing conditions are mixed with only the far eastern areas receiving sufficient rainfall.
