Here is your paragraph on Green Revolution in India!
It is true that green revolution has brought in its wake some beneficial effects for the Indian agricultural setting.
Nevertheless, it has its own limitations. It has been limited in its coverage on three counts: crops, land and regions.
Viewed from the angle of crops, green revolution has been confined largely to wheat. As for rice, the staple food of an overwhelming majority of Indians, the revolution has simply by passed it.
Hence, it is often referred to as “Wheat revolution” rather than green revolution. The success of green revolution, for the most part, depends upon adequate irrigation facilities. But in the Indian context, a large proportion of the agricultural land is without irrigation facilities. This vast area naturally falls outside the orbit of green revolution. So far as the dry areas are concerned, the applicability of the new agricultural strategy is simply out of question.
Furthermore, the adoption of new technology is confined only to some developed areas like Punjab, Haryana and Western Utter Pradesh. The states of the Eastern region covering West Bengal, Bihar and Orissa have not been benefitted by such HYV technology. The other parts of the country have remained untouched by the new agricultural strategy.
The HYV seeds have only limited coverage of cereals only. Some important commercial crops like sugarcane, oil seeds and pulses have not been covered by the new technology. Only the large farmers and landlords have been immensely benefitted by adopting green revolution. There is hardly any appreciable development in the economic condition of the small and marginal farmers as they have no capacity to adopt NAT.
