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, conditions remain poor as harvest continues for both the spring-planted crop (larger) and the summer-planted crops. The prolonged drought throughout the season caused widespread damage and significantly reduced production. Further damage has occurred due to the recent continuous rainfall across the Pampa Plain region, causing fungal disease and bean sprouting on the plant.
  • In the US, sowing has begun across the country under favourable conditions.
  • In Canada, sowing is proceeding, but additional rainfall is needed to support crop growth and development.
  • In China, conditions are favourable as sowing and crop emergence is underway in the northern provinces.
  • In Ukraine, sowing is ongoing under favourable conditions.
