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, rains in western and northern Europe hampered harvesting and raised quality concerns, however overall yields are in line with the 5-year average as harvest is nearing completion.
  • In the Russian Federation, conditions are exceptional for winter wheat as harvest is completing, while sowing for the next season has begun in some areas under favourable conditions. Spring wheat development continues under exceptional conditions with excellent yield prospects going into harvest.
  • In Kazakhstan, conditions are generally favourable for spring wheat with the exception of dry conditions in Akmola, a main producing area.
  • In China, spring wheat is under favourable conditions as harvest begins.
  • In the US, harvest of spring wheat is wrapping up. Production in areas of the western Dakotas and Montana were significantly reduced due to drought. However, conditions in other parts of the spring wheat region were quite good.
  • In Canada, conditions are mixed as dry conditions in the Southern Prairies are causing concern for spring wheat, while winter wheat yields in Ontario are average despite the cool wet season.
  • In Australia, conditions have improved across southern production states with recent rainfall. However, dry conditions persist across northern areas in Western Australia, central and northern New South Wales and Queensland, where production is expected to be significantly affected in these areas.
  • In Argentina, conditions are generally favourable as sowing is finishing, however new rains continue to delay final sowing in the southern areas.
