Map description

The crop condition map, kindly provided by the GEO Global Agricultural Monitoring initiative (GEOGLAM), synthesizes information for all four AMIS crops in major growing areas. Assessments are based on a combination of national and regional crop analyst inputs along with earth observation data. Crops that are in other than favourable conditions are displayed on the map with their crop symbol.

Crop conditions at a glance

  • Wheat: In the northern hemisphere, conditions remain mixed as winter wheat harvest completes, and spring wheat harvest begins. The Russian Federation is experiencing exceptional conditions while in the northern plains of the US and southern prairies of Canada, dry weather persists for spring wheat. In the southern hemisphere, conditions remain mixed with adverse weather in Argentina and Australia.
  • Maize: In the southern hemisphere, conditions continue to be generally favourable as harvest wraps up in Argentina and Brazil. Conditions in the northern hemisphere are generally favourable, albeit with some areas of concern in the EU, China, and Ukraine due to dry weather. 
  • Rice: In Asia, conditions are mixed as heavy rainfall affects areas in the north of Viet Nam, northern Thailand, and northeast China. Conditions remain favourable in India, Indonesia and the Philippines.
  • Soybeans: In the northern hemisphere, conditions are generally favourable with the exception of dry conditions in Ukraine. In the southern hemisphere, new-crop plantings are still to begin.
