Map description

The crop condition map, kindly provided by the GEO Global Agricultural Monitoring initiative (GEOGLAM), synthesizes information for all four AMIS crops in major growing areas. Assessments are based on a combination of national and regional crop analyst inputs along with earth observation data. Crops that are in other than favourable conditions are displayed on the map with their crop symbol.

Crop conditions at a glance

  • Wheat - In the northern hemisphere, conditions are mixed for winter wheat as the US, EU, Ukraine, and the Russian Federation are all experiencing some dry conditions. Spring wheat conditions are generally favourable. In the southern hemisphere, winter wheat conditions are favourable with the exception of drought conditions in eastern Australia.
  • Maize - In the southern hemisphere, conditions in Brazil for the summer-planted crop (larger) have deteriorated in the main producing regions. Conditions in Argentina remain poor as the harvest is more than half way complete with poor end-of-season prospects. In the northern hemisphere, conditions are favourable with the exception of areas in China, Ukraine, and the Russian Federation.
  • Rice – In China, conditions are favourable for both single rice and early rice. In India, Kharif rice is starting under favourable conditions, while in Southeast Asia, dry-season rice harvesting is nearly complete and sowing of wet-season rice is ongoing in the northern countries. In Indonesia, sowing of dry-season rice continues to be delayed in areas due to insufficient rainfall.
  • Soybean - In the southern hemisphere, harvest wrapped up in Argentina under poor conditions due to in-season drought and heavy rainfall during ripening stages. In the northern hemisphere, conditions are favourable with some slight delays in sowing in India and some dryness in southern Ukraine.
