Green Revolution in India

An increase in food production, especially in underdeveloped and developing
nations, through the introduction of high-yield crop varieties and application of
modern agricultural techniques. The introduction of high-yielding varieties of
seeds and the increased use of chemical fertilizers and irrigation are known
collectively as the Green Revolution, which provided the increase in production
needed to make India self-sufficient in food grains, thus improving agriculture in
India. High-yielding wheat was first introduced to India in 1968 by American
agronomist Norman Borlaug. Borlaug has been hailed as the Father of the Green
Revolution but M.S. Swaminathan is known as the "Father of the Green
Revolution in India". The methods adopted included the use of high yielding
varieties (HYV) of seeds.
The production of wheat has produced the best results in fueling self-

sufficiency of India. Along with high yielding seeds and irrigation facilities, the
enthusiasm of farmers mobilized the idea of agricultural revolution and is also
credited to M. S. Swaminathan and his team had contributed towards the success of
green revolution. Due to the rise in use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers there
were many negative effects on the soil and the land such as land degradation.
