The remaining acres are in countries with large numbers of limited-resource farmers.
The information gathered by the ISAA shows that biotechnology is producer size neutral.

Researchers in these countries have also shown that biotechnology is a proven technology that can be replicated in developing countries, tailored to meet the specific needs of local producers and provide benefits to agricultural producers and consumers.
