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 are generally favourable for winter wheat sowing. Spring wheat harvest in Canada is wrapping up under poor conditions. In the southern hemisphere, conditions remain mixed with adverse weather affecting all major producers.
  • Maize - In the northern hemisphere, conditions remain generally favourable during harvest with increases in expected production in the US and Canada. However, dry weather has adversely affected crop conditions in Ukraine. In the southern hemisphere, conditions are generally favourable for ongoing sowing in Argentina, Brazil, and South Africa.
  • Rice – In Asia, crop conditions are generally favourable. Harvest of wet-season rice is ongoing except in Indonesia, where dry-season rice is being harvested. The north of Viet Nam and northeast of Thailand have been impacted by heavy rainfall.
  • Soybean - In the northern hemisphere, conditions are generally favourable with an increase in expected production this year for the US, Canada, and Ukraine. In the southern hemisphere, crop conditions are favourable for Brazil, while sowing begins under mixed conditions in Argentina.
