Narender Nagpal and Krishan Daga of Deutsche Bank suggest in a recent paper that this second green revolution, focusing on fruits and vegetables, can double agricultural growth to 4% per year. Government initiatives are the key to the success. Fair price to farm produce and 6 Crop insurance to every acre sown. Fortunately, in India we have the largest population of livestock in the world and the demand for livestock produce is increasing steeply. In reality, they need to still pay for expensive pesticides and irrigation systems, which might lead to increased borrowing to finance the change from traditional seed varieties. Splitting of land holding, after a father passes away, into multiple children have depleted the economic viabilities of farms. In this system canals receive water from one or more reservoirs or from rivers.
Bengal, Bihar, Orissa, Assam, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and eastern Uttar Pradesh as original green revolution brought a little impact here. Cheap credit from banks and corporates can facilitate horticulture. Continued of farming areas The area of land under cultivation was being increased right from 1947. Agrarian distress is much more worst than industrial unrest. Farm cooperatives are becoming larger and more effective.
A better policy option would be to have the new overseas players mandated to invest a portion of their capital for augmenting our warehousing, supply chain, logistics through a public-private partnership model. We do not endorse these articles, we are neither affiliated with the authors of these articles nor responsible for their content. The first Green Revolution, she suggests, was mostly publicly funded by the Indian Government. This cooperation includes structured interactions between governments, experts and most important — farmers. It has delivered India food security and sufficiency which was critical at that time. The latter scheme will be a great engineering achievement.
We need not only new varieties and crop management methods but also innovations for crop planning, warehousing and food processing. Secondly, under pressure of population and industrialisation the land under cultivation is continuously decreasing. The correct type of fertiliser is, in fact, as important as the correct quantity, which should be an important consideration in any plan for a second Green Revolution in India. Indian infrastructure is lousy, rural electricity is totally unreliable, and cold chains for keeping vegetables fresh repeatedly break down. In regional terms, only and states showed the best results of the Green Revolution. Thirdly, in spite of all the development not only our agriculture but also the food distribution system is almost entirely dependent on climate. Rather it is achievable if mindset on introducing newer technology is changed.
This awareness led, on one hand, to the Green Revolution in India and, on the other, legislative measures to ensure that businessmen would never again be able to hoard food for reasons of profit. It has caused over-use of soil and rapidly depleted its nutrients. Our farmers do not earn enough to feed themselves and repay their debts. As yields on Indian lands are still far below world average, our policy makers will have to look somewhere else, to bring it at par with world average. Under such conditions, several different kinds of irrigation systems are adopted to supply water to agricultural lands. Due to traditional agricultural practices, low productivity, and a growing population, food grains had to be imported.
Inefficient absorption by crops and wasteful application of fertilizers are the main causes of environment pollution. The plan was implemented only in areas with assured supplies of water and the means to control it, large inputs of fertilizers, and adequate farm credit. For north-south link of rivers, technology may some day, make digging of tunnel-canal link easier. So, while the potential for a second green revolution is huge, the hurdles are high too. The first green revolution took two decades to spread over India. Advances in biotechnology have stimulated private sector interest in a range of commodities.
In reality it is a threat to future food supplies. Today, we are seeing perhaps the dawn of the second green revolution. First, the above-mentioned triumvirate, which guaranteed the success of the First Green Revolution, may be difficult to form. The fund for enhancing warehousing capacity has been enhanced to Rs. The new methods in agriculture increased the yield of rice and wheat, which reduced India's dependence on food imports. However, problems of hunger and starvation continue to plague the country. It is unlikely to happen to-morrow or next year, but it possibly may happen by 2020.
Second Green Revolution The first Green Revolution was launched to ensure food security as there was severe scarcity of food in the country. Today we have a clearer understanding of how to monitor, control — even reverse — land and water degradation. Third, the government proposes a Warehousing Receipts Act, which will make warehousing receipts negotiable instruments, and thus qualify for bank financing.

This is to be done by genetically engineered crops, by continuously improving them.
