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, harvest of summer-planted maize is closing under favourable conditions. An increase in planted area and yields led to an increase in production compared to last year.
  • In Argentina, conditions are generally favourable as harvest wraps up although high soils moisture and high grain moisture are delaying remaining areas.
  • In the US, conditions are favourable with good yield prospects as conditions improved in the Dakotas and the eastern Midwest.
  • In Canada, cool wet weather continues to slow crop development in the main producing province of Ontario.
  • In Mexico, conditions are favourable for the start of the spring-summer crop as rains have begun across the country.
  • In the EU, overall conditions are favourable as rains mitigated heat stress in eastern Europe, but southern Europe is still affected by a drought that potentially damaged yields.
  • In Ukraine, conditions are less than favourable as a lack of rain and a rapid drying of the soil have affected crops in the southern, central, and eastern regions.
  • In China, spring maize is in generally favourable condition with the exception of dry conditions in eastern Inner Mongolia. Conditions are favourable for summer planted maize in the flowering stage.
  • In India, conditions are favourable for the Kharif crop as good soil moisture levels positively impact continued crop development.
