Green Revolution and Its Benefits
Norman Ernest Borlaug, American agricultural scientist, plant pathologist, and winner of the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1970, initiated this Green Revolution. It was implemented with the goal of higher yields of food grains, especially wheat and rice, and was focused more on developing countries like India. It decreased the dependency on natural conditions and let the farmers grow crops in adverse conditions by using certain technologies and adopting new ways in the same direction. It made the farmers' task less daunting and gave them higher income than earlier.
