Crop Monitor

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, harvest is ongoing for the summer-planted crop (higher producing season) under exceptional conditions. A bumper crop is forecast due to an increase in total sown area and increased yields.
  • In Argentina, harvest is continuing albeit with some slight delays due to heavy rainfall. Conditions are favourable to exceptional for both spring-planted and summer-planted crops with a record harvest forecast.
  • In Mexico, harvest of the autumn-winter cycle crop is continuing under favourable conditions while sowing of the spring-summer crop is progressing under favourable conditions with a slight increase in total sown area.
  • In China, conditions are mixed as the spring-planted crop in the northeast has experienced below average rainfall since sowing.
  • In the US, much of the country remains under watch conditions due to the persistent wet spring, which significantly delayed sowing. Additionally, the delay in sowing combined with the long-lasting spring provide risks to final yields.
  • In Canada, conditions remain mixed due to dry conditions in Manitoba along with excessive moisture and delayed planting in the main producing eastern provinces.
  • In the EU, conditions remain generally favourable with exceptional conditions in the southeast due to abundant rainfall.
  • In Ukraine, conditions are favourable in the central and western regions, while the eastern and southern regions are experiencing dry to drought conditions.
