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, winter wheat conditions are favourable with a very mild winter causing only minor frost damage so far.
  • In Ukraine, winter wheat conditions are favourable with a very warm winter leading to no crop losses so far. Rainfall and snow levels are sufficient to allow for good soil moisture conditions in the spring.
  • In the Russian Federation, conditions are favourable for winter wheat with warmer than usual weather protecting crops from winter damage.
  • In China, conditions are favourable for winter wheat with heavy snow cover for insulation during dormancy and spring soil moisture.
  • In India, sowing of Rabi wheat is almost complete under favourable conditions, with a minor reduction in sown area compared to last year.
  • In the US, winter wheat conditions are generally favourable, however, dryness has been on the increase in the Southern Great Plains. Total sown area is similar to last year.
  • In Canada, conditions are mixed for winter wheat with poor soil moisture conditions and minimal snow cover during the dormancy phase in the southern prairies.
  • In Argentina, harvest completed in Buenos Aires with a favourable crop despite the mixed conditions experienced during the season.
