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 Ukraine, winter wheat sowing has begun under favourable conditions owing to recent improvements in soil moisture.
  • In the Russian Federation, spring wheat harvest continues with yields expected to be near average. Winter wheat sowing is complete in northern regions and is underway in the southern regions under favourable conditions.
  • In Kazakhstan, spring wheat harvest is proceeding under favourable conditions with average yields expected.
  • In the US, spring wheat harvest is complete with favourable production prospects.
  • In Canada, winter wheat harvest is complete with slightly lower yields relative to last year. Spring wheat harvest continues with variable yields and some concern across the Prairies due to dry conditions during the growing season and early snow cover in some regions. Harvest continues with variable yields for spring wheat due to soil moisture deficits in some regions over the past several months.
  • In Australia, yields vary considerably across the country with exceptional conditions in Western Australia and parts of South Australia. While in the east, conditions are poor due to a lack of rainfall, most notably in Queensland and New South Wales.
  • In Argentina, conditions are generally favourable with some concern in areas of low soil moisture.
