Almost all companies selected for the South and Southeast Asia Index have a presence in India. Even in Afghanistan and Laos, which are relatively overlooked, six and nine companies respectively have a presence. However, in these countries as well as in Sri Lanka, Nepal and Cambodia, most companies limit their activities to sales. Often, only a single company reports having adoption strategies or extension services in place in any one of these five countries. The highest number of technical staff is reported in India. Based on estimates of farmers reached by the 24 companies in the index, together they reach no more than 20% of all active smallholder farmers.
