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 mixed as excess rainfall in the north hamper sowing of winter wheat.
  • In Ukraine, winter wheat sowing is complete under improved weather conditions with only some areas of concern remaining in the south due to continued dry conditions.
  • In the Russian Federation, spring wheat harvest finished under favourable conditions. Winter wheat sowing is almost complete under favourable conditions with improvements in soil moisture in the south.
  • In China, winter wheat sowing is underway with low temperatures in the Loess region and southwest Huanghuaihai impacting operations.
  • In the US, winter wheat sowing continues under favourable conditions, with some minor dryness persisting in the northern plains.
  • In Canada, spring wheat harvest is wrapping up under poor conditions with yields expected to be well below average due to dry weather throughout the season in the prairies. Winter wheat planting began under favourable conditions in the main producing province of Ontario, though dry conditions in the prairies could result in some plot losses.
  • In Australia, production prospects deteriorated due to unfavourable early spring conditions particularly in New South Wales and Queensland. Timely October rainfall is likely to benefit later sown crops across southern Australia.
  • In Argentina, conditions are generally favourable.
