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, most areas for spring-planted crops are being harvested under exceptional conditions, and increased production is expected owing to good weather over the course of the growing season. The summer-planted (larger) crop is under favourable conditions, predominantly in the vegetative to reproductive stages.
  • In Argentina, harvesting has begun under favourable conditions with only minor areas affected due to early season dryness, with late-planted maize in better condition compared to the early-planted crop.
  • In South Africa, conditions are exceptional in the main producing regions with above-average production expected owing to wet and mild conditions during the season, although dry conditions in March may affect later-planted crops.
  • In Mexico, planting of the autumn-winter crop is close to being completed under very good conditions.
  • In India, Rabi maize has concluded harvesting under favourable conditions.
  • In the US, planting has begun in the south under favourable conditions.
