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 southern hemisphere, harvesting has completed. In the northern hemisphere, winter wheat is in dormancy under generally favourable conditions.
  • Maize - In the southern hemisphere, crop conditions are mixed due to dry conditions in Brazil, Argentina and South Africa.
  • Rice – In India, the Rabi crop is favourable. In Southeast Asia, crop conditions are favourable as dry-season rice begins in the northern countries while wet-season rice is well underway in Indonesia.
  • Soybean - In the southern hemisphere, crop conditions are mixed for Argentina and Brazil due to a combination of dry and wet conditions.
