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 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 are generally favourable as the spring-planted crop enters the critical reproductive stage. However, there is some concern over dry conditions in the large producing region in the south. Sowing of the summer-planted crop (larger) has begun under favourable conditions.
  • In Argentina, conditions are generally favourable for both the early and late planted crops with scattered areas of dryness in the central and southern growing regions. Dry conditions in the north are delaying sowing of the late crop.
  • In South Africa, conditions are mixed in the main production region with favourable conditions in the east and dry conditions in the west.
  • In Mexico, conditions are favourable as harvest of the spring-planted crop continues and sowing of the autumn-planted crop progresses.
