The Green Revolution
Help Us Produce Enough Food For India!
The Bengal Famine
The Three Elements of the Green Revolution
Expansion of farms: The area of land under cultivation is not enough for the population. Therefore, farmland can be expanded.
Double-cropping: To produce more crops, dams can be built to create artificial monsoons to have two crop seasons a year.
Using genetically modified seeds: The Indian Council for Agricultural Research can develop new strains of high-yield wheat and rice, as well as millet and corn.
A 3 In 1 Deal!
The Green Revolution takes into account three aspects of India!
Economic: The double-cropping element of the Green Revolution will force India to create new dams to store Monsoon water. The water stored can be used to create hydroelectrical power, creating new jobs and improving the lives of many people.
Sociological: The Green Revolution will produce many more job oppurtunities in India by the creation of factories and hydro-electric power stations.
Political: After the Green Revolution, India will be turned into one of the major exporters of food. This can earn admiration for India in politics.
