Transcript of 1st vs. 2nd Green Revolution

The Green Revolution is a significant increase in agricultural productivity resulting from the introduction of high-yield varieties of grains, the use of pesticides, and improved management techniques. It consisted of research, development, and technology occurring between the 1940's and the late 1970's, that increased agriculture production around the world. It involved the development of new varieties of cereal grains, expansion in irrigation designs, distribution of hybridized seeds, synthetic fertilizers, and pesticides for farmers
The Green Revolution can be referred to a gather of research and development of plants. It is the name given to a package of fertilizers, pesticides, irrigation and high yielding varieties of crop seeds development. The Green Revolution was first developed in the 1940s for the use of outside temperate zones. New seed breeding was used to modify local diseases in seed developing countries to make them more productive and less sensitive throughout different climate zones. It was initially led by the Rockefeller foundation that was increasing food production. The Green Revolution came more popular in the 1960s, when it was being spread throughout the developing world by the network of international research centers and aid programs. The 1st green revolution is where people domesticate crops themselves and most likely would not meet that standards of the crop that they were looking for. The world needed a better way to grow food to feed the whole world in a certain amount of time, creating the 2nd Green Revolution. 2nd Green Revolution It was emerged in the mid 1980s with new engineering techniques and freed trade agreements giving them property rights of the food production. Allowing them the ability to shape not only agricultural policies world wide, but the whole structure of the food system. It was called the 2nd green revolution because it referred to the work of scientists like Norman Borlaug, to apply the concepts of crop selection in order to develop specialized crops like dwarf wheat to meet the needs of a growing world population. Agriculturist continue to live in the 2nd green revolution today with the development of GMO foods and the application of technologies to fix the problem of feeding the world. 1st Green Revolution
