REASON: Would you say the green revolution was a success. Borlaug: Yes, but its a never-ending job. When I was born inthe world population was approximately billion people.

It has just turned 6 billion. Weve had no major famines any place in the world since the Green Revolution began. Over the fifty year course of the Green Revolution, Mexico has remained at the center ofits latest discoveries.

Norman Borlaug, the genial scientist-pacifist who died of cancer in Dallas on Saturday, was as much India’s ‘annadaata’ as he was the Father of the Green Revolution. Around the time Dr Borlaug arrived on the scene in the mids, the specter of famine, shortages, and starvation hung over the sub-continent.

Green revolution () evaded massive famine: - Research argues that green revolution - was about making crops that needed pesticides and stuff-- Want peasant farmers to be dependent on the big company foods-- Seeds you have to buy from company (cant even reproduce urself!) -- Green Revolution plants highly dependent on fertilizer and pesticide.

Improved seeds were a crucial part of this Green Revolution, and Norm Borlaug was indispensable in developing new breeds of grain that boosted harvests all over the world. The population bomb fizzled–and in Norm won the Nobel Peace Prize for his life-saving efforts.

Concerns About Population in the s. Inthe world's population reached 3 billion. This received considerable attention at the time, including a January cover story in Time Magazine under the banner “That Population Explosion” (Time Magazine ).Even more important than the population of 3 billion was the unprecedented rate of population growth.
