  1. Data refer to the subnational units covered by this study: 68% of the planted area in Cambodia (KHM), 86% in Laos (LAO), 84% in Indonesia (IDN), 82% in Philippines (PHL), 86% in Thailand (THA), 80% in Vietnam (VNM), 76% in Kenya (KEN), 71% in Tanzania (TZA), and 82% in Uganda (UGA). The actual area planted under improved varieties and the number of farmers using these varieties will therefore be higher. Regional averages were calculated using mungbean areas as weights
