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, continued hot and dry weather resulted in unfavourable conditions for grain filling in some regions, most notably in Spain and France.
  • In China, crop conditions are favourable for winter and spring wheat.
  • In the US, winter wheat harvest began with much of the Great Plains area under watch conditions owing to dryness in the north and the late April winter storm, impacts of which are still being assessed. Spring wheat is also under mixed conditions due to persistent dryness in the northern Great Plains area, though it is still early in the season.
  • In the Russian Federation, conditions are favourable to exceptional for winter wheat and favourable for spring wheat development.
  • In Ukraine, conditions are mixed due to a shortage of spring-summer rains, however in the southern and eastern areas (major growing regions) the crop received favourable weather conditions during the critical development phase.
  • In Canada, recent rainfall in the Prairies has improved crop conditions for spring wheat and sowing is complete, however heavy rains and cool weather continue to hamper development of winter wheat in Ontario.
  • In Australia, conditions are mixed as dry conditions persist across much of the western and southern areas, however it is still early in the season.
  • In Argentina, sowing is proceeding under mixed conditions as heavy rains hamper progress.
