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 both winter and spring wheat. The US, Canada, EU, Ukraine, and the Russian Federation are all experiencing adverse climatic conditions in some areas. In the southern hemisphere, sowing of winter wheat has begun under generally favourable conditions with the exception of dryness in Australia.
  • Maize - In the southern hemisphere, conditions remain poor in Argentina, were harvest is being hampered by continuous rainfall. Conditions are mixed in Brazil for the summer-planted crop. In the northern hemisphere, sowing is continuing in the US, Canada, EU, Ukraine, Russian Federation, China and Mexico under mostly favourable conditions.
  • Rice – In China, early-rice and intermediate-rice is under generally favourable conditions. In India, Rabi rice harvest is wrapping up under favourable conditions. In Southeast Asia, crop conditions remain favourable as dry-season rice harvesting is ongoing in the northern countries. In Indonesia, sowing of dry-season rice has been delayed several months due to insufficient rainfall.
  • Soybean - In the southern hemisphere, harvest of the crop in Argentina is being impacted by continuous rainfall. In the northern hemisphere, sowing is underway under favourable conditions with the only areas of concern in Canada.
