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 India, Rabi rice is in favourable conditions as the harvest nears competition with good yields expected.
  • In China, conditions are mixed for early rice as continuous rainy weather has been unfavourable in the south central regions.
  • In Indonesia, harvesting continues for the wet-season crop with good yields owing to the later-planted rice receiving more irrigation water and sunlight than the earlier-planted crops.
  • In Viet Nam, conditions are favourable for dry-season rice in both the north and south. Harvesting of dry season rice has begun while sowing of wet season rice is ongoing in the south.
  • In Thailand, harvesting of dry-season rice has begun under favourable conditions with increased yields expected owing to sufficient rainfall and irrigation water over the course of the season.
  • In the Philippines, the harvesting of dry-season rice is ongoing and the crop is under favourable conditions with good yields expected.
  • In Brazil, conditions remain favourable as the harvest nears completion in the main producing region.
  • In the US, nearly all sowing has been completed and is progressing under favourable conditions.
