Pie chart description

Pie chart description

Each slice represents a country's share of total AMIS production (5-year average). Main producing countries (representing 95 percent of production) are shown individually, with the remaining 5 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 is an increase in total sown area compared to last year. Conditions are generally favourable despite pockets of dryness that affected the states of Mato Grosso do Sul and Paraná. A more consistent rainfall pattern during January in Paraná, along with beneficial weather across the region, has prevented larger crop losses. The majority of the crop is in the reproductive stage while harvest has begun.
  • In Argentina, conditions are mixed for both the spring-planted and summer-planted crops. Heavy rains and flooding delayed sowing, resulting in a reduction of total sown area. Some remaining areas continue to deal with field saturation from the heavy rainfall.
