Crop Monitor

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.

Winter wheat conditions in the northern hemisphere are mixed as dry or cold conditions are observed in some areas. 

  • In the EU, winter wheat conditions are generally favourable; however, additional rain is needed in important crop-production areas and a cold spell has raised concerns and delayed crop growth.
  • In the US, conditions are favourable as the South Great Plains has received rainfall, abating the earlier dryness. Both winter wheat and spring wheat areas are expected to be down to multi-decade lows.
  • In China, conditions are favourable for winter wheat as the crop is vegetative stage. In India, winter wheat is under favourable conditions as harvesting is finishing.
  • In the Russian Federation, conditions are under watch as an April snowfall and frost may have damaged the crop in places. In Ukraine, conditions remain favourable while recent cool weather has slowed crop growth and development.
  • In Canada, conditions are mixed as prolonged dry weather and insuficient snow cover in the southern prairies has raised concerns about winterkill.
