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, conditions for the summer-planted crop (larger) have deteriorated in the main producing regions in the South and Central-West due to lack of soil moisture during the critical development stages. Coupled with a reduction in total sown area, expectations for yields and final production have been further reduced.
  • In Argentina, the harvest is more than half way complete with poor end of season prospects. The prolonged drought throughout the season, combined with recent continuous rains, resulted in significantly reduced yields and total production.
  • In the US, conditions are generally favourable with the crop in the vegetative to reproductive stage except for areas far south, where the crops are in the reproductive stage.
  • In Canada, sowing is complete, and the crop is developing favourably.
  • In Mexico, harvest of the autumn-winter planted crop continues under favourable conditions. Sowing of the spring-summer crop is ongoing under favourable conditions.
  • In China, conditions are favourable for the summer-planted crop. Spring-planted maize is under generally favourable conditions with the exception of dry conditions in the south and southwest.
  • In India, sowing of the Kharif crop has begun under favourable conditions.
  • In the EU, conditions are generally favourable, with a lack of rainfall in eastern Europe starting to raise some concerns regarding crop development.
  • In Ukraine, conditions are mixed due to extremely dry conditions in the south and east.
