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, conditions are favourable across the country owing to continuing good weather, and production prospects are up relative to last year. The crop is mainly in the reproductive, ripening and harvesting stages, where good water supply is critical for the development of yields.
  • In Argentina, conditions have improved to mostly favourable across the country for both early and late planted crops owing to good weather. Losses from the earlier flooding in the central region represent a minor proportion of the total sown area. Small areas of dryness persist in the northwest and in the very southeast.
