Describe the changes that took place in the field of agriculture in India due to the Green Revolution in the late 1960s.
The changes that occurred due to the Green Revolution in India are as follows :
The use of advanced technology in agriculture implying use of High Yield Variety (HYV) seeds, chemical fertilisers and pesticides and a well developed system of irrigation led to a substantial increase in the production of food grains, mainly wheat and rice.
It resulted in higher income growth. Even poor farmers who practised modern farming with advanced technology started becoming rich.
It led to commercialisation of agriculture as farmers started cultivating flowers, cotton, tobacco etc.
