  3. Green Revolution It is the introduction of new techniques of agriculture, which became popular by the name of Green Revolution (GR) in early 1960sat first foreat d by the nest It revolutionised the very traditional idea of food production by giving a boost by more than 250 per cent to the productivity level. 18 The Green Revolution was centred around the use of the High Yielding Variety (HYV) of seeds developed by the US agro-scientist Norman Borlaug doing research on a British Rockfellor Foundation Scholarship in Mexico by the early 1960s. The new wheat seeds which he developed in vivo claimed to increase its productivity by more than 200 per cent. By 1965, the seeds were successfully tested and were being used by farmers in food deficient countries such as Mexico, Taiwan


  4. Components of the Green Revolution The HYV Seeds These seeds were popularly called the 'dwarf' variety of seeds. With the help of repeated mutations, Mr. Borlaug had been able to develop a seed which was raised in its nature of nutrients supplied to the different parts of the wheat plant-against the leaves, stem and in favour of the grain This made the plant dwarf and the grain heavier-resulting in high yield.19 These seeds were non-photosynthetic, hence non-dependent on sun rays for targeted yields The Chemical Fertilizers The seeds were to increase productivity provided they got sufficient level of nutrients from the land. The level of nutrients they required could not be supplied with the traditional compostes because they have low concentration of nutrients content and required bigger area while sowing-it meant it will be shared by more than one seed That is why a high concentration fertilisers, were required, which could be given to the trageted seed only-the only option was the chemical fertilisers-urea (N), phosphate (P) and potash (K).20


  5. Components of the Green Revolution The Irrigation For controlled growth of crops and adequate dilution of fertilizers, a controlled means of water supply was required. It made two importanft compulsions-firstly, the area of such crops should be at least free of flooding and secondly, artificial water supply should be developed Chemical Pesticides and Germicides As the new seeds were new and non- acclimatised to local pests, germs and diseases than the established indigenous varieties, use of pesticides and germicides became compulsory for result-oriented and secured yields Chemical Herbicides and Weedicides To prevent costlier inputs of fertilisers not being consumed by the herbs and the weeds in the farmlands, herbicides and weedicides were used while sowing the HYV seeds


  6. Components of the Green Revolution Credit, Storage, Marketing/Distribution For farmers to be capable of using the new and the costlier inputs of the Green Revolution, availability of easy and cheaper credit was a must As the farmlands suitable for this new kind of farming was region-specific (as it was only Haryana, Punjab and western Uttar Pradesh in India) storage of the harvested crops was to be done in the region itself till they were distributed throughout the country Again, the countries which went for the Green Revolution were food-deficient and needed the new yield to be distributed throughout the country and a proper chain of marketing, distribution and transport connectivity was necessary All these peripheral infrastructure were developed by the countries going for the Green Revolution with softer loans coming from the World Bank-India being the biggest beneficiary
