India’s first agriculture revolution of the mid-20th century started in the late 19th century when the country began to produce wheat and rice and to sell it as a staple food.
The revolution came as the country was still in the grip of the first world war.
Today, wheat and other crops produce an estimated 5.5 million tonnes of wheat and a little more than 5 million tonnes rice, while rice is the mainstay of India’s diet.
The two major crops have grown rapidly and have been sold globally since.
But as India’s population has grown to over one billion, it is facing a food shortage that has led to shortages in key crops.
The food shortage in the country has also led to a sharp decline in food prices, with the government of India trying to increase its revenue to fund the poor.
The crisis has led the World Bank to urge India to increase food prices by $300 billion over the next decade.
The World Bank has estimated the country’s total food consumption at $22.2 trillion.
Here’s a look at what happened during the second revolution.
2nd agriculture revolution In the mid 1930s, a new breed of wheat developed.
Called Bt (bacterium-resistant), this strain was resistant to the most commonly used antibiotics in use at the time.
India was one of the few countries in the world that didn’t have any antibiotics at the turn of the century, which meant farmers were forced to use herbicides and chemical pesticides that could kill beneficial bacteria.
In addition, the first Bt varieties were not able to withstand the herbicide glyphosate, which is widely used to treat weeds.
In response to this, farmers started planting Bt wheat in India, and it quickly spread to other parts of the world.
By the 1960s, India’s farmers had planted more than 90 million hectares of Bt variety, which produced 1.2 billion tonnes of rice, the majority of which was used to feed the poor and to feed livestock.
The growth of B and Bt farmers in India helped the country to overtake China as the world’s second-largest rice exporter in 2011.
This year, Bt rice is expected to account for about 50 per cent of India a country that consumes nearly half the world food supply.
India’s economic growth is predicted to reach 7 per cent this year, up from 4 per cent last year.
India has been struggling with chronic undernourishment.
It now has more people undernurished than any other country in the developing world, and its population is projected to grow by almost 15 per cent by 2050.
The population has been growing rapidly in recent decades and is projected in 2050 to have surpassed the world population of 7.4 billion.
This has led experts to predict that by 2050 India will be a net exporter of goods and services, with about 10 per cent coming from imports.
But there is concern that the country could lose the global position it once held.
