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 sowing has begun in the south under favourable conditions.
  • In India, conditions are favourable for the Rabi crop in the vegetative stage.
  • In Indonesia, conditions are generally favourable as sowing of the wet-season rice wraps-up with total sown area lower than normal due to variable rainfall. Harvest of earlier sown wet-season rice continues with favourable yields.
  • In Viet Nam, sowing of the winter-spring rice (dry season rice) was completed in the south under favourable conditions, and there is an increase in total sown area relative to last year. Sowing continues in the north with a slightly lower total sown area due to earlier cold weather delays.
  • In Thailand, dry-season rice is in the grain filling stage under favourable conditions owing to sufficient rainfall and irrigation water at the beginning of the season.
  • In the Philippines, conditions are generally favourable for dry-season rice which is mostly in the maturing to harvesting stages. High yielding variety seeds have offset impacts from the multiple storm systems earlier in the season.
