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 EU, conditions are mixed due to hot and dry conditions affecting northern and eastern Europe, while Spain is experiencing exceptional positive conditions.
  • In Ukraine, winter wheat conditions are mixed as harvest begins. Hot and dry conditions, most notably in the south and east, are placing the crop under considerable stress and pose a potential risk to final yields.
  • In the Russian Federation, winter wheat is under mixed conditions due to recent persistent dry conditions. Spring wheat is under favourable conditions albeit with some initial sowing delays due to wet weather. July will be the critical period for crop development.
  • In Kazakhstan, spring wheat conditions are favourable, with July a critical month for determining potential yields.
  • In China, conditions are favourable for both winter and spring wheat as harvesting of winter wheat continues.
  • In the US, drought conditions during the majority of the season in the southern Great Plains (major production region) have reduced yields significantly, with production expected to be reduced. However, conditions were favourable across the rest of the country so the overall production is down only a few percent. Spring wheat (grown farther north) conditions are favourable so far.
  • In Canada, spring and winter wheat conditions have improved across the prairies with the exception of parts along the southern border due to persisting drought.
  • In Australia, severe rainfall deficits have been observed in the east, most notably in New South Wales. Continued rainfall shortages will impact final sown area and, although early in the season, it can potentially impact final yields.
