  1. Planted area based on national statistics for 2017–2018 (see Table 1 for sources). Adoption of improved varieties at the national level calculated as the average of the subnational estimates weighted by planted area
  2. aCalculated over the subnational locations that were surveyed, conservatively assuming zero adoption in all other areas
