The Green Revolution is an effort that has increased crop yields throughout the
world since 1950. These high yielding crops are produced by planting monocultures of
genetically altered plants and by using inorganic fertilizer, irrigation water and pesticides
in large quantities. It is arguable that the Green Revolution is a total success, even
though it may be true that it temporarily improves the lives of millions of people. The

no longer getting the necessary
nutrients that it needs to be fertile. A huge amount of land is lost thanks to this.
Soaring populations, increased illnesses and deaths, pollution, loss of food
varieties and deterioration of the land are all factors which point to the direction that the
Green Revolution is not a success. The Green Revolution drastically changed the world.
To say that it was a change for the better though, would be false.
