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 remain mixed as harvest begins for winter wheat, and the spring wheat crop is mostly in early vegetative to reproductive stages. There is a further downgrading of conditions most notably in the US and Europe. In the southern hemisphere, crops are in planting to early vegetative stages, and conditions remain mixed with heavy rainfall in Argentina and dry conditions in Australia, though it is still early in the season.
  • Maize: Conditions in the northern hemisphere are generally favourable at this early stage of the season, with the exception of minor areas in the US, China, Ukraine, and Canada. In the southern hemisphere, conditions are favourable as harvesting continues in Argentina and Brazil.
  • Rice: In Asia the rainy season has begun and crop conditions are generally favourable across most of the region. However, heavy rainfall and low solar radiation in China has affected early rice.
  • Soybeans: In the southern hemisphere, harvest is almost complete. In Argentina, good yields are expected despite recent floods. In the northern hemisphere, sowing continues under generally favourable conditions
