Pie chart description

Pie chart description

Each slice represents a country's share of total AMIS production (5-year average). Main producing countries (representing 95 percent of production) are shown individually, with the remaining 5 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, transplanting of the Rabi rice is progressing under favourable conditions in the southern and eastern parts of the country.
  • In Indonesia, sowing of wet-season rice is continuing with recent rainfall resolving irrigation water shortages. Harvest has begun on earlier sown fields with yields expected to be average this season.
  • In Viet Nam, sowing of winter-spring rice (dry-season rice) has begun under favourable conditions in the south at a faster pace than last year.
  • In Thailand, dry-season rice is in the early vegetative stages under favourable conditions. A reduction in total sown area is expected compared to last year due to insufficient rainfall and irrigation water, along with incentives to shift to maize.
  • In the Philippines, dry-season rice is in the vegetative stage under favourable conditions with a reduction in total sown area compared to last year.
  • In Brazil, conditions are under watch due to excessive rainfall and cloud cover in January.
