As of the end of June, conditions are generally favourable for wheat, maize, rice, and soybeans with a few areas of concern.

For maize, harvesting is continuing in the southern hemisphere and is in the vegetative to reproductive stages in the northern hemisphere. Rice conditions are generally favourable in Southeast Asia while sowing of Kharif rice is ongoing in India, and early-season rice is harvesting in China.
