Crop Monitor

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 Brazil, there was an increase in total sown area this season. Conditions are favourable with the crop in the ripening to harvesting stages. Advanced harvests from the Central-West region confirm good production expectations.
  • In Argentina, conditions continue to deteriorate due to poor soil moisture for both the spring-planted crop (larger) and the summer-planted crops. Prospects for the summer-planted crop are even less optimistic since the majority of the crop development occurred under the ongoing dry spell. Variable conditions exist in Buenos Aires.
