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 95 percent of production) are shown individually, with the remaining 5 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, winter wheat conditions are generally favourable, but additional rainfall is needed in southern Europe in the coming month.
  • In Ukraine, a very warm start to March has led to winter wheat growth being two to three weeks ahead of normal, which tends to be a positive factor for final yields.
  • In the Russian Federation, winter wheat conditions are off to an exceptional start in the Southern region, while areas further north remain in dormancy under favourable conditions.
  • In China, conditions for winter wheat are generally favourable as warmer than average weather is bringing the crop out of dormancy earlier than normal.
  • In India, winter wheat is progressing towards maturity stage under favourable conditions. Total sown area is in line with the previous year.
  • In the US, winter wheat conditions are favourable in the main producing area of the southern Great Plains. Further north, in Nebraska and the Dakotas, very wet and snowy conditions are raising concerns.
  • In Canada, winter wheat conditions are favourable for the dormant crop in the main producing provinces. However, delays in sowing in the fall, along with an increased risk of winterkill, may reduce production in the southern Prairies.
