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.

  • In the EU, conditions are favourable as frost damage remains limited despite the recent cold spell.
  • In Ukraine, winter wheat conditions are favourable with the recent cold weather and snow causing a delay in the break of dormancy for the majority of the crop, while the crop has emerged from dormancy in the south.
  • In the Russian Federation, conditions are favourable for winter wheat with the majority of the crop still in dormancy. However, areas in the south are clear of snow and the crop is developing ahead of schedule.
  • In China, winter wheat conditions are mixed due to below-average temperatures in the east but above- average growing conditions in the southwest. Spring wheat sowing has begun.
  • In India, conditions are favourable with the crop in maturity to harvesting stage. There is a slight reduction in sown area this year.
  • In the US, prolonged drought in the main winter wheat growing region is becoming a serious concern as the crop has entered the critical period of its growing season. However, conditions remain under watch at this time given that precipitation can still facilitate some recovery. Across the rest of the US, winter wheat is under generally favourable conditions.
  • In Canada, conditions are mixed as limited snow cover during much of the winter in the prairies, and extreme temperature variability in the main winter wheat producing province of Ontario, has increased the risk of winterkill.
