The Indian Subcontinent Position Extent and Physical Features-Green and Other Revolutions

The Indian Subcontinent Position Extent and Physical Features-Green and Other Revolutions

Reflection on Green and other revolutions in India, the detailed retrospective is of the revolution's limits and achievements in terms of improvements of agriculture productivity.

The study introduces the green and other revolution broader impacts of environmental, social, and levels of economics. The strategic insight reviews preparing in the world the redux version of the revolution that is more environmentally integrative, and combines social impacts with economic and agriculture development. The core direction policy of the Green revolution 2.0 is sustainable and spread to impact social and environmental combined specified technologies. The growth of the food crop is extraordinarily witnessed for developing the growth productivity of the food crop. The values of rising land and scarcity despite increasing the population more than doubled.           

The green revolution leads to crops’ highest productivity through adopting the measure. The result of the Green revolution of 131 million tons grain that established the biggest producer and farmland per unit improved by 30% between 1947 and 1979. The increased area of farming, double cropping that includes the two crops planting annually.  


The positive impacts of the Green Revolution reduce the rate of poverty and lower the prices of foods. The agricultural output rapidly increased resulting in the GR per hectares yields increment. The modern varieties of the crop spread and were catalyzed by the green Revolution. Rapid increases of the rice and wheat yields for developing countries are brought by the improved varieties of combined expansion of the use of chemical inputs and other fertilizers. The dramatic income impacts developing countries for supplying food production however the impacts vary and are immediate the important results. The social changes and facilitated institutional Green Revolution provided opportunities in the rural areas that provided the opportunities for economic growth and self-sustaining to reduce poverty. The technological changes’ outcomes are under the influence of environmental policy and institutional policy that is introduced.   

Future Aspects

The distributed benefits that are widely spread for the appropriate and unfavorable changes are the future aspects. Green Revolution’s potential benefits are promoting economic growth to reduce the rate of poverty and facilitate the development of self-sustaining abilities that are exploited fully. The important interaction between policy institutional environment and Green Revolution is recognized to debate the impacts related to the green revolution. However, the recognition fails and deals greatly to distinguish the failure impacts that lead often to the Green Revolution argument. The undesirable development occurred by the inappropriate consequences that offered to change the total production of agriculture enlarging more uses of the productive resources. The opportunity is used by the associated distributed benefits among the groups of population public policy and institutions. Further, the technological changes played a vital role in the appropriate changes that bring about the former both and the latter that pursued simultaneously. The green revolution continues to address and consider the related issues that are greatly important for the changes. The recent data impacts on the production of the foods the discussion follows the production fluctuation impacts in the future. The evidence of nutrition and poverty summarizes and impacts the linkage or multiplier that affects technological changes. The desirable path of the growth of self-staining is the dealt issue that plays a role in the equity issue.                    

Types of Revolution

Green Revolution is associated with the agricultural field the duration of the period is 1966 to 1967 the father of the revolution is M.S Swaminathan.

White Revolution is related to the Dairy production and Milk production fields over the period from 1970 to 1996 the father of the revolution is Verghese Kurien. 

Blue Revolution is closely related to the aquaculture field for fish and aquatic production; the period ranges from 1973 to 2002 that was founded by Arun Krishnan.

Golden Revolution is the production in the field of horticulture such as honey and fruits production. The father of the Revolution is Nirpakh Tuteja the time-period was from 1991 to 2003.

Silver Revolution the production of eggs in the 2000s through Indira Gandhi. 

Yellow Revolution in the field of oilseeds production between 1986 and 1990 by Sam Pitroda.

Pink Revolution in the field production of pharmaceuticals products onions, and prawns in the 1970s by Durgesh Patel. 

The Brown Revolution was associated with the formation of Coco and Leather by Hiralal Chaudhari. 

Red Revolution production of Meat and Tomatoes is in the 1980s by Vishal Tiwari.

Golden Fiber Revolution the formation of jute in 1990s

Black Revolution is associated with petroleum products in India known as the Black Revolution.

Gray Revolution the production of fertilizers in 1960 to 1970

Protein Revolution higher production of protein is in the field of agriculture coined by Narendra Modi in 2014 to 2020. 

Round Revolution potato production from 1965 to 2005

Silver Fiber Revolution cotton production in the 2000s


The study concludes the popularized Green Revolution that growing fast doubles the cropping and triples the harvesting. In the agricultural field seeds and natural processes are used for organic farming techniques. Impacts on food prices and productivity focus on the improvements of the crop genetics High Yielding Varieties (HYVs) that decrease the maturity time and increase productivity. Green Revolution technology widespread adoption of the significant shifts of the functions of the food supplies. The numerous improvement of the crop allows for the best breeding freely and widely available. National Agricultural Research System (NARC) adapted the particular varieties of the preferences or agro-ecological environments.
