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.

Overall winter crop conditions are favourable in the northern hemisphere at this early stage of the season and the crop is expected to break dormancy next month in most countries.

  • In the EU, overall conditions are favourable with only limited frost damage reported despite widespread cold temperatures.
  • In the US, conditions are favourable with warmer than usual temperatures, however planted area is down near a 100 year low.
  • In China, winter wheat is under favourable conditions.
  • In India, winter wheat is mostly in late vegetative to reproductive stages under good conditions with favourable production prospects.
  • In the Russian Federation, conditions are favourable with adequate snow cover providing protection from low temperatures.
  • Similarly in Ukraine, winter wheat is under generally favourable conditions with sufficient snow cover to protect the crop from the severe frosts and the very low temperatures experienced in February.
  • In Canada, winter wheat is under favourable conditions with some minor areas currently affected by either winter-kill or spring flooding.
