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 Brazil, harvesting is advancing for the spring-planted crop and average yields are expected. Sowing of the summer- planted crop (higher producing season) is progressing under favourable conditions. A slight increase in total sown area is expected.
  • In Argentina, harvest of the spring-planted crop has begun under exceptional conditions in the main producing areas. Conditions are favourable for the summer- planted crops.
  • In Mexico, conditions are favourable for both the spring-summer cycle and autumn-winter crops.
  • In South Africa, conditions are mixed as dry conditions in the western production area early in the season reduced sown area, and current warm and dry conditions continue to put pressure on yields. Rainfall over the short term will be crucial to determining final yields.
  • In India, conditions are favourable for the Rabi crop as sowing is complete and total sown area is close to average.
  • In the US, sowing of maize has begun in the southern states under favourable conditions.
