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, single-season rice is under generally favourable conditions except in the northeast due to heavy rainfall and low solar radiation. Late rice is under favourable conditions.
  • In India, conditions are favourable with good soil moisture levels across the country for the Kharif crop currently in the vegetative stage.
  • In Indonesia, conditions continue to be favourable for dry-season rice owing to adequate irrigation water and sunlight. Planting continues as the harvest of earlier planted rice enters the second month, with higher yields than last dry-season expected.
  • In Viet Nam, conditions in the north are mixed due to heavy rains and flooding as sowing of wet-season rice has completed with an increase in area compared to last year. While in the south, harvesting of wet-season rice continues under favourable conditions with yields similar to last year.
  • In Thailand, conditions are mixed as two tropical storms impacted the northern part of the country, providing ample rainfall though also causing some flood damage.
  • In the Philippines, wet-season rice harvest has begun under favourable conditions, despite heavy rainfall in Luzon and western areas from several tropical storms enhancing the southwest monsoon.
  • In the US, rice conditions are favourable and unaffected by hurricane Harvey due to harvest being completed in those areas.
