All 13 global seed companies invest in local seed business activities such as breeding, production and processing in index regions. However, these investments are concentrated in a small number of countries. As a result, the seed sector in other countries benefits less from these kinds of investments. The ten countries with the most investments are India, Thailand, Indonesia, The Philippines, Vietnam, South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, Guatemala and Peru. Only two companies report investing in local breeding and one other in production in Western and Central Africa.
