Pie chart description

Pie chart description

Each slice represents a country's share of total AMIS production (5-year average). Main producing countries (representing 90 percent of production) are shown individually, with the remaining 10 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 China, conditions are favourable for single rice and semi-late rice in the maturation stage. Late rice in the south is under favourable conditions in the heading stage.
  • In India, Kharif rice is under favourable conditions while in the maturity stage in the north and tillering stage in the south. An increase in total sown area is reported.
  • In Indonesia, sowing of dry-season rice is complete with total sown area down due to dry conditions earlier this season. Harvest of the earlier sown rice continues with yields remaining above last year’s yields.
  • In Viet Nam, conditions are favourable for the summer-autumn rice (wet-season rice) with a slight reduction in national total sown area. Harvest has begun in the south with some delays due to a late start of the season.
  • In Thailand, conditions of wet-season rice are generally favourable owing to continuous rain and good weather. However, flooding due to heavy rains in the northeastern region is expected to reduce yields.
  • In the Philippines, wet-season rice conditions are mixed due to adverse weather conditions over the course of the season. Harvest of the April-May sown crop is ongoing and a reduction in final yields compared to last year is expected. A typhoon in mid-September affected heavily the northern region, but details are currently under investigation.
  • In the US, conditions are favourable.
