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 mostly favourable with sufficient rainfall and sunlight during the critical reproductive development stages in most parts of the country. Nevertheless, there is some concern in the south due to lack of rainfall in some parts and excess rainfall and lack of sunlight in other parts.
  • In Argentina, conditions are mixed for both the spring-planted crop (larger) and the summer-planted crops. Conditions are generally favourable with scattered areas of dryness in the main producing areas in the central and southern growing regions. In the north, conditions are unfavourable as the sowing of the summer-planted crop is delayed due to a lack of soil moisture and high temperatures.
