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, conditions improved to favourable for late-rice in most parts of Lower Yangtze and southern regions. 
  • In India, harvest of the Kharif crop continues under generally favourable conditions, with the exception of minor areas in the south that experienced heavy rains. 
  • In Indonesia, conditions are favourable as harvest of the dry-season rice continues with higher yields than last year. Sowing of wet-season rice has begun. 
  • In Viet Nam, conditions are mixed in the north due to heavy rainfall from October tropical cyclones. Harvest of wet-season rice began with initial yields slightly higher than last year. In the south, wet-season rice harvest continues under favourable conditions, with yields expected to be slightly below last year’s. Sowing of the dry-season crop has begun. 
  • In Thailand, conditions are generally favourable for wet-season rice except in the northeast due to flood damage and disease outbreaks. 
  • In the Philippines, conditions are favourable for the wet-season rice planted July-August, which is currently in vegetative to reproductive stage. Heavy rainfall from recent tropical cyclones resulted in no significant damage. 
  • In the US, conditions continue to be favourable as harvest wraps up.
