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 mostly favourable through there is concern developing over areas of persistent dry soil conditions, most notably in Germany and the Czech Republic, limiting emergence and early crop development.
  • In Ukraine, winter wheat is now in dormancy under generally favourable conditions with some areas of underdeveloped crops due to dry conditions in the southern and eastern regions.
  • In the Russian Federation, winter wheat established under favourable conditions and the crop is now dormant.
  • In China, winter wheat conditions are mixed with dry conditions developing after sowing and emergence in the North China Plain.
  • In India, sowing of winter wheat is progressing under favourable conditions. In the US, winter wheat sowing and emergence is on time and under favourable conditions.
  • In Canada, winter wheat sowing is mostly complete under mixed conditions in the western Prairies due to adverse sowing conditions in the late fall. A reduction in total sown area is expected.
  • In Australia, harvest of winter wheat is well underway with production forecast to decrease significantly year-on-year.
  • In Argentina, harvest is ongoing in the north under favourable conditions with an overall increase in production expected owing to an increase in total sown area and a slight increase in yields.
