Product Description

Editorial Reviews

The so-called Green Revolution was a managerial and technical export package from the U.S. to Latin America. It consisted of a complete plan to replace existing farming methods and crops with the more mechanized and scientific planting of high yield crops which were selected by geneticists for their response to chemical fertilizer and irrigation water, their resistance to pests, and in some cases their compatibility with mechanized harvesting and container shipping. It was touted as the answer to food shortages, a way to triple and even quadruple crop yields, and as a means to make Mexico self-sufficient for decades, if not centuries to come, in feeding its growing population.
