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, the spring-planted crop is under generally favourable conditions, however, there is some concern over the Center-West growing area (Goiás) due to dry conditions.  Most of the crop is in the reproductive stages, and harvest has begun in the south. Sowing of the summer-planted crop began under favourable conditions.
  • In Argentina, conditions are generally favourable for the spring-planted and summer-planted crops with flooding affecting only minor areas. Sowing of the summer-planted crop is experiencing some delays due to the floods; however, the sowing window remains open into February (missing yellow in world map).
  • In Mexico, harvest of the spring-summer crop is wrapping up under favourable conditions while the sowing of the autumn-winter crop is ongoing with an increase in sown area expected.
  • In South Africa, conditions are mixed with eastern areas receiving normal to above normal rainfall, while dry conditions in the west are impacting crops and have reduced the total area sown.
  • In India, sowing of the Rabi crop is complete under favourable conditions.
