What were the achievements of the Green Revolution?

Answer:

Achievements of the Green Revolution are:

  1. The spread of the Green Revolution technology enabled our economy to achieve self-sufficiency in food grains. There was an enormous increase in the production of food grains through the use of high yielding variety seeds for wheat, rice, etc. The farmers were provided with reliable irrigation facilities and financial support to use fertilisers and pesticides.
  2. A portion of the food grains were sold in the market which resulted in a decline in the price level of the food grains as compared to other forms of consumption. Low income groups were benefited from the reduced price level. It also enabled the government to procure the required amount of food grains to build a stock which can be used in times of shortage.
  3. The government provided loans to small farmers to purchase the necessary inputs for the new technology. The risks of the small farmers were solved, when pests attacking their crops were controlled by the services of the research institutes. Thus, the Green Revolution benefited the small as well as rich farmers.
