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, conditions are generally favourable with some dryness in the northwest.
  • In China, dryness in the northeast and low solar radiation in the southeast has resulted in mixed conditions for spring maize while summer maize is under favourable conditions.
  • In the EU, hot weather has resulted in favourable conditions for maize in vegetative growth stages, especially in eastern European regions.
  • In Ukraine, conditions are mixed due to recent rainfall deficits in the north-central regions.
  • In India, sowing of the Kharif crop began under favourable conditions.
  • In Canada, conditions continue to be affected by excess moisture and cool weather in the main producing province of Ontario.
  • In Mexico, conditions are favourable for both the planting of the spring-summer crop and the harvesting of the autumn-winter crop.
  • In Brazil, conditions are favourable for summer-planted maize. An increase in production compared to last year is expected due to an area increase and favourable weather conditions, as confirmed with the harvest advance.
  • In Argentina, conditions are generally favourable as the first crop harvest is almost complete and the late planted crop harvest begins, progressing slowly due to the prioritization of soybean harvest.
