Nineteen companies (86%) provide extension services in the region. Despite this, a minority accompany sales activities with extension services in all or most countries where they are present, creating a geographic imbalance. Eight of the 12 companies in Uganda and nine of the 12 in Kenya report training smallholders. This contrasts with the companies in Angola (eight), Namibia (eight), Madagascar (seven) and South Sudan (seven), where none provide training. Seed Co leads the industry, providing training in 12 countries, followed by East African Seed, in six countries. East African Seed also sets the bar with the highest number of extension staff, employing 44 in Kenya, 25 in Tanzania and 20 in Uganda, among others.
