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, early-rice and intermediate rice is under favourable conditions with exceptional conditions in the southern and southeastern provinces, but below average conditions in Guizhou and Hunan provinces.
  • In India, Rabi rice harvest is wrapping up with production estimated to be above last year’s crop.
  • In Indonesia, harvest of wet-season rice continues with favourable yields that are in line with last year’s crop. Sowing of dry-season rice in the main paddy producing provinces continues to be delayed by several months due to moderate to low precipitation.
  • In Viet Nam, winter-spring rice (dry season rice) is under favourable conditions. Harvest is ongoing in the south with early yields estimated to be slightly above last year’s. Sowing of summer-autumn rice (wet season rice) is beginning in the south under favourable conditions.
  • In Thailand, harvest is approaching completion for dry-season rice with an increase in production forecast owing to the increase in sown area and favourable yields. Wet-season rice sowing is just beginning under favourable conditions with an increase in total sown area expected.
  • In the Philippines, dry-season rice conditions are favourable with harvest nearly complete. An increase in production is observed compared to last year.
  • In the US, sowing is wrapping up under favourable conditions.
