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 the US, harvest has begun and record yields are expected in many areas owing to exceptional growing conditions across most of the country.
  • In Canada, harvest is ongoing in the prairies with yields varying according to rainfall received over the past few months. An increase in yield is expected at the national level compared to last year, however overall production will be down due to a reduction in harvested area this year.
  • In China, conditions are favourable with the crop in the maturing and harvesting stages. Early harvesting has begun in some regions of central and northeast China compared to last year.
  • In India, the crop is in the pod filling stage under favourable conditions.
  • In Ukraine, harvest has begun under favourable conditions.
  • In Brazil, sowing is just beginning under favourable conditions.
