India and Mexico's Success Stories
India first was a starving country, but after adopting the green revolution they were able to not only grow food for them but also export food to others! They boosted their economy by creating new jobs, and created new irrigation systems. All they had to do was harness pesticides and tools in order to improve their agriculture
Mexico had another success story very similar to India but they never went through such a huge famine. Mexico developed a disease resistence high yeild wheat. Mexico was able to produce enough wheat not only to feed heir own people, but soon enough they were able to export the wheat to other countries. Then the technology Mexico had used spread to the rest of the world.
