Green revolution advocated by Indian Prime Minister

India’s population and farmers are afraid of GM crops? Indian Ag falling behind in new production techniques?

That’s a problem.

ACSH reminds us of the great Norman Borlaug, father of the green revolution–plant genetics that produced improved crop yields and saved millions from starvation. Norman, a boy from Minnesota, was awarded a Nobel Prize for his life saving ag research in 1970 and much acclaim here and abroad. His focus was field and patty crops, but GM row crops were beneficiaries of his research too.
