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 Argentina, harvest wrapped up for both the spring-planted crop (larger) and the summer-planted crops. Widespread damage and significantly reduced production due to the prolonged in-season drought have been amplified by the continuous rains during ripening stages, reducing remaining grain quality.
  • In the US, conditions are favourable for the crop in the early vegetative stage.
  • In Canada, sowing is complete under favourable conditions, but further rainfall in the prairies is required for continuing crop development.
  • In China, conditions are favourable for soybean as sowing continues across the country.
  • In India, conditions are favourable as sowing has begun. Progress is slightly delayed, but will likely return to normal conditions by next month.
  • In Ukraine, conditions are favourable across most of the country, with the exception of the south and east, where dry conditions continue.
