    “The term Green Revolution refers to the renovation of agricultural practices beginning in Mexico in the 1940s. Because of its success in producing more agricultural products there, Green Revolution technologies spread worldwide in the 1950s and 1960s, significantly increasing the amount of calories produced per acre of agriculture” (http://geography.about.com/od/globalproblemsandissues/a/greenrevolution.htm). Norman Borlaug was the pioneer of this revolution, who was an American scientist and graduate of the University of Minnesota. He developed new disease resistance high-yield varieties of wheat for domestic growth in Mexico and other countries around the world (including the US), essentially feeding millions of people in countries that imported most of their wheat supply.
