Green Revolution in India: Environmental Degradation and Impact on Livestock
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.

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.

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. This review deals with the impacts the Green Revolution had on the production of indigenous crops, its effects on society, environment, nutrition intake, and per capita availability of foods, and also the methods that can be implemented to revive the indigenous crops back into cultivation and carry the knowledge to the future generation forward. India holds the second-largest agricultural land in the world, with 20 agro-climatic regions and A report by the Department of Agriculture, Cooperation and Farmers Welfare estimates that the food grain production in India will be
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.
