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, conditions are favourable for the Rabi crop with an increase in sown area from last year.
  • In Indonesia, conditions are favourable as sowing of the wet-season rice continues, albeit slowly, as farmers wait for enough rainfall. Harvest of earlier sown wet-season rice has also begun.
  • In Viet Nam, sowing of the winter-spring rice (dry season rice) has begun in the south under favourable conditions, though the sowing rate is lower this year due to the slow receding of waters.
  • In Thailand, dry-season rice is in the vegetative stage under favourable conditions with an increase expected in sown area compared to last year owing to ample rainfall and irrigation water.
  • In the Philippines, conditions are favourable for dry-season rice that is currently the vegetative stage with an increase in sown area compared to last year.
