Answer:
  1. The Green Revolution in India refers to the series of researches and technological advancements in the field of agriculture. It led to a great increase in the crop produced by using high yield variety seeds, fertilisers, extensive irrigation etc.
  2. The Green Revolution greatly impacted the farmers of Punjab. Due to large scale production, the farmers became prosperous. Since their purchasing power improved, they were able to invest more money in agriculture. Consequently farming has become mechanised, whereby much of the work is done by machines such as tractors and combined harvestors on large farms.
