The Green Revolution

Help Us Produce Enough Food For India!

The Bengal Famine

The Bengal Famine in 1943 was a food famine that killed four million people over a one year period in British-controlled India. This famine was caused by a food shortage and the results of World War II. After World War II, British rulers considered food supplies as a low priority. Therefore, India, which was controlled by the British, experienced a food shortage. India must do something to produce enough food!

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.
