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, the harvest is coming to a close under exceptional conditions with increased production prospects now across the country, owing to adequate water and good weather over the course of the growing season.
  • In Argentina, the harvest is progressing with some delays in the south due to heavy rains and flooding. Production prospects remain positive on good yields, which have offset the negative impacts of flooded areas.
  • In the US, sowing has begun in the south. Sown area for 2017 is expected to be at a record high.
