  1. Area and production data obtained from [13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21]. Considering the mungbean production system in Laos, official yield and production data appeared unrealistic and are therefore not shown. The number of farm households producing mungbean was calculated using the average mungbean area per farmer as estimated by the expert panels
