Wheat

In the northern hemisphere, winter wheat conditions continue to be largely favourable. Spring wheat planting is fully underway and conditions are favourable at this early stage of the season. In the southern hemisphere, the winter wheat season has started under mostly favourable conditions.

Maize

In the northern hemisphere, planting is almost complete under generally favourable conditions. In the southern hemisphere, conditions continue to be favourable in Argentina, however conditions remain mixed in Brazil due to the unfavourable weather earlier in the season.

Rice

Overall conditions for the new season are favourable in Southeast Asia. Planting and field preparations are ongoing in Thailand, the Philippines and the US under favourable conditions. End of season conditions for Thailand’s dry season crop were poor due to the impacts of El Niño witnessed throughout the season.

In the northern hemisphere, planting began under generally favourable conditions. In the southern hemisphere, as the season draws to a close, conditions in Argentina improved, though some concerns remain due to heavy rainfall throughout April.
Early Warning

Southern Africa

The maize season has come to a close. The poor conditions and crop failure experienced across the region will continue to impact millions of people well into 2017. Planting of the wheat crop began under mostly favourable conditions.

East Africa

Crop conditions are mostly favourable and have improved since last month owing to timely rainfall, particularly over Ethiopia. Concerns remain over Somalia and parts of Kenya and Ethiopia.

West Africa

The season began, and conditions are favourable throughout at this early stage of the season.

North Africa

Severe drought conditions continue to impact the region resulting in crop failure in Morocco and poor yields in parts of Algeria. Spring rainfall in Algeria and Tunisia have mitigated drought concerns despite remaining pockets of crop failure and poor rangeland conditions.

Southwest Asia

Conditions are generally favourable except in Tajikistan, where there is concern over moisture deficit.

Southeast Asia

The wet season rice planting and field preparation began in most countries under favourable conditions. End of season rice conditions in Thailand and Laos are poor due to the drought effects of El Niño throughout the season.

Central America & Caribbean

The season recently began and conditions are mixed at this early stage due to dry conditions and a delay in the start of the season attributed to late effects El Niño.
