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 remain mostly favourable with parts of central and eastern Europe affected by a lack of precipitation.
  • In Ukraine, winter wheat conditions are generally favourable though recent hot and dry conditions in the south are causing premature ripening in some areas, creating a potential risk to final yields.
  • In the Russian Federation, winter wheat is entering the critical development stages under mixed conditions due to recent hot and dry conditions in the south. Spring wheat sowing is ongoing under generally favourable conditions with some delays in the east due to wet weather.
  • In Kazakhstan, spring wheat planting has completed under favourable conditions.
  • In China, conditions are favourable for both winter and spring wheat.
  • In the US, drought conditions still remain in the southern Great Plains (major production region), however the recent rainfall has potentially improved conditions for the winter wheat crop.
  • In Canada, low soil moisture conditions in the prairies are affecting both spring and winter wheat. Precipitation in the next few weeks will be critical in this region for uniform germination and crop development, to avoid a significant decline in crop area. Winter wheat conditions in the main producing province of Ontario are favourable.
  • In Australia, conditions are favourable in the west while low soil moisture across much of the eastern and southern areas is affecting winter wheat.
