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 the US, a bumper crop is expected as harvest progresses.
  • In Canada, conditions remain mixed heading into harvest. There is some concern due to the dry weather experienced in Manitoba, and Quebec, while the crop in the main producing province Ontario is under favourable conditions.
  • In Mexico, conditions are favourable for the spring-summer crop with an increase in total sown area compared to last year.
  • In China, conditions are favourable with harvest beginning early in some regions of central and northeast China.
  • In India, conditions are favourable with the crop in the grain filling stage and there is an increase in sown area compared to last year.
  • In the EU, harvest is ongoing with overall EU yields expected to remain above the five-year average. The persistent drought in northern and central Europe significantly reduced yield prospects in those regions, however exceptional prospects in southern Europe are expected to help compensate.
  • In Ukraine, harvest begun with record yields expected in the central and western regions.
  • In Brazil, harvest of the summer-planted crop (larger) is complete with reduced yields and area due to lack of rainfall over the course of the season. Sowing of the spring-planted crop has begun in the south under favourable conditions.
  • In Argentina, sowing is commencing under favourable conditions for the spring-planted crop.
