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.

Overall, winter wheat crop conditions are favourable in the northern hemisphere as the crop begins to exit dormancy.

  • In the EU, winter wheat conditions are favourable due to mild temperatures in late February and early March.
  • In the US, the situation is mixed as dryness has developed in the primary growing areas of the southern Great Plains, while the rest of the country is seeing good conditions.
  • In China, conditions are mostly favourable with the exception of the southwest, where high rainfall is affecting the crop.
  • In India, winter wheat is in the ripening to maturity stage under favourable conditions.
  • In the Russian Federation, conditions are favourable as the crop exits dormancy.
  • In Ukraine, winter wheat has broken dormancy earlier than usual due to an unseasonably warm March and is currently under generally favourable conditions with almost no winter kill reported, slightly dry conditions exist in the south.
  • In Canada, winter wheat is still in dormancy under generally favourable conditions with planted area estimated to decrease this year. Monitoring continues for spring flooding, dry conditions, and winter-kill as spring snowmelt is underway.
