The period of mids was very significant from the point of view of agriculture.

Green Revolution: Effects and Limitations of the Green Revolution

Green revolution , great increase in production of food grains especially wheat and rice that resulted in large part from the introduction into developing countries of new, high-yielding varieties, beginning in the midth century. Its early dramatic successes were in Mexico and the Indian subcontinent. The new varieties require large amounts of chemical fertilizers and pesticides to produce their high yields, raising concerns about cost and potentially harmful environmental effects. Poor farmers, unable to afford the fertilizers and pesticides, have often reaped even lower yields with these grains than with the older strains, which were better adapted to local conditions and had some resistance to pests and diseases.

African governments raised spending on agricultural development, supported by international donors who recognized, for the first time in decades, that developing countries needed to grow more of their own food and that their small-scale farmers could be a crucial part of that effort rather than a drag on economic development. Global philanthropies, newly endowed with billions of dollars in technology profits, led the charge. AGRA eventually set the ambitious goals of doubling crop productivity and incomes for 30 million small-scale farming households while halving food insecurity in 20 African countries by That Green Revolution project is failing. Few small-scale farmers have benefited. Some have been thrown into debt as they try to pay for the high costs of the commercial seeds and synthetic fertilizer that Green Revolution proponents sell them. For the last 14 years, governments and donors have bet heavily, and almost exclusively, on the Green Revolution formula of commercial inputs, fossil-fuel-based fertilizers and agro-chemicals.

Green Revolution in India

Like other developing countries, Green Revolution has influenced the economy and way of life in India to a great extent as is evident from the following points:. The introduction of Green Revolution in has resulted in phenomenal increase in the production of agricultural crops especially in food-grains. From onwards, the Green Revolution aimed at bringing about a Grain Revolution. Among the food grains too, it is the wheat crop which drew maximum benefit from Green Revolution. The production of wheat increased by more than three times between and while the overall increase in the production of cereals was only two times. On account of this reason, it is said that the Green Revolution in India is largely the Wheat Revolution. With the increase in farm production the earnings of the farmers also increased and they became prosperous.

The new agricultural technique was introduced as a package programme to include HYV seeds, fertilizers and pesticides. To increase agricultural production and productivity, the Government of India invited a team of experts sponsored by the Ford Foundation. This report suggested the means of improving production and productivity of the country with stress on modern inputs, especially fertilizers, credit, marketing facilities etc. As a result of high-yielding varieties of wheat the production of wheat rose to high level of to kg. These seeds required proper irrigation facilities and extensive use of fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides.

In addition to the environmental impacts of the period, the Green Revolution also had impacts on society. This technology was made available only to rich but the poor farmers were left out due to the expenditure incurred in adapting the new technology. Log in. The technology of the Green Revolution involved bio-engineered seeds It created a lack of biodiversity in the global cropland structures. The spread of the agricultural practices of the Green Revolution may have helped to reduce hunger issues in developing countries, but it also created a significant deficit in agro-diversity and wild biodiversity around the globe.

Metrics details. The Green Revolution in India was initiated in the s by introducing high-yielding varieties of rice and wheat to increase food production in order to alleviate hunger and poverty. Post-Green Revolution, the production of wheat and rice doubled due to initiatives of the government, but the production of other food crops such as indigenous rice varieties and millets declined. This led to the loss of distinct indigenous crops from cultivation and also caused extinction.

Внутри было темно и шумно. Приемный покой представлял собой бесконечный узкий коридор с выстроившимися в ряд во всю его длину складными стульями. Установленная на треноге картонная табличка с надписью OFICINA стрелкой указывала направление. Беккер двинулся по едва освещенному коридору.

 Могу биться об заклад.  - Он откусил кусок пирога и заговорил с набитым ртом.  - Максимальное время, которое ТРАНСТЕКСТ когда-либо тратил на один файл, составляет три часа. Это включая диагностику, проверку памяти и все прочее. Единственное, что могло бы вызвать зацикливание протяженностью в восемнадцать часов, - это вирус.

Беккер отлично говорил по-французски, тем не менее обратился к этому человеку на языке, который тот, как он надеялся, должен был знать хуже. Убедить абсолютно незнакомого человека отдать вам золотое кольцо скорее всего будет весьма непросто, поэтому Беккер хотел заручиться хотя бы одним преимуществом. Пока старик собирался с мыслями, Беккер не произнес ни слова. Тот огляделся вокруг, указательным пальцем разгладил усы и наконец заговорил: - Что вам нужно? - Он произносил английские слова немного в нос. - Сэр, - начал Беккер чуть громче, словно обращаясь к глуховатому человеку, - я хотел бы задать вам несколько вопросов. Старик посмотрел на него с явным недоумением.

The Green Revolution reconsidered

Introduction

Испания не славится эффективностью бюрократического аппарата, и Беккер понял, что ему придется простоять здесь всю ночь, чтобы получить информацию о канадце. За конторкой сидела только одна секретарша, норовившая избавиться от назойливых пациентов. Беккер застыл в дверях, не зная, как поступить. Необходимо было срочно что-то придумать. - Con permiso! - крикнул санитар. Мимо стремительно проплыла каталка.

 - Кроме того, ТРАНСТЕКСТ уже больше двадцати часов не может справиться с каким-то файлом. Фонтейн наморщил лоб. - Это по вашим данным. Мидж хотела возразить, но прикусила язык. И прижала ладонь к горлу.
