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.

Conditions are generally favourable throughout the major growing regions.

  • In China, conditions are mixed for early rice due to heavy rainfall in the south and southeast, along with low solar radiation in the northeast.
  • In India, conditions are favourable for the Kharif crop currently in nursery bed development and transplanting in the southwest.
  • In Indonesia, harvest of wet-season rice is near complete with good yields expected, while conditions are favourable for the continued sowing of dry-season rice, with some earlier planted areas advancing to vegetative stage.
  • In Viet Nam, conditions are favourable across the country for harvest of winter-spring rice with average or just below average yields expected. In the south, sowing continues for the summer-autumn rice under favourable conditions.
  • In Thailand, conditions are favourable as sowing of wet-season rice is underway with an increase in planted area forecasted compared to last year, owing to an early start of the rainy season.
  • In the Philippines, the majority of wet-season rice advanced to the vegetative stage under favourable conditions with the starting of the rainy season bringing above average to near average rainfall.
  • In the US, conditions are favourable.
