Source text - English
The Green Revolution was a series of research, development, and technology transfer initiatives, between the 1940s and the late 1970s. It increased agriculture production around the world, especially from the late 1960s. The initiatives, led by Norman Borlaug and credited with saving over a billion people from starvation, involved the development of high-yielding varieties of cereal grains, expansion of irrigation infrastructure, modernization of management techniques, distribution of hybridized seeds, synthetic fertilizers, and pesticides to farmers.[153]

Synthetic nitrogen, along with mined rock phosphate, pesticides and mechanization, have greatly increased crop yields in the early 20th century. Increased supply of grains has led to cheaper livestock as well. Further, global yield increases were experienced later in the 20th century when high-yield varieties of common staple grains such as rice, wheat, and corn were introduced as a part of the Green Revolution. The Green Revolution exported the technologies (including pesticides and synthetic nitrogen) of the developed world to the developing world. Thomas Malthus famously predicted that the Earth would not be able to support its growing population, but technologies such as the Green Revolution have allowed the world to produce a surplus of food.[154]

Although the Green Revolution at first significantly increased rice yields in Asia, yield then levelled off.[155] The genetic "yield potential" has increased for wheat, but the yield potential for rice has not increased since 1966, and the yield potential for maize has "barely increased in 35 years".[155] It takes only a decade or two for herbicide-resistant weeds to emerge, and insects become resistant to insecticides within about a decade, delayed somewhat by crop rotation.[155]
Translation - Swedish
Den gröna revolutionen var en serie initiativ för forskning, utveckling och tekniköverföring mellan 1940-talet och slutet av 1970-talet. Den ökade jordbruksproduktionen runt om i världen, särskilt från slutet av 1960-talet. Initiativen, som leddes av Norman Borlaug och kom att rädda över en miljard människor från svält, omfattade utveckling av högavkastande sorter av spannmål, utökad infrastruktur för bevattning, modernisering av hanteringstekniker, distribution av hybrida fröer, syntetiska gödselmedel och bekämpningsmedel till lantbrukare.

Syntetiskt kväve har, tillsammans med utvunnen stenfosfat, bekämpningsmedel och mekanisering, kraftigt ökat skördarna under 1900-talets början. Ett ökat utbud av spannmål har också lett till billigare boskap. Under senare delen av 1900-talet märktes globala skördeökningar då högavkastande sorter av de vanligaste spannmålen som ris, vete och majs infördes som en del av den gröna revolutionen. Den gröna revolutionen exporterade dessa teknologier (inklusive bekämpningsmedel och syntetiskt kväve) från den utvecklade världen till utvecklingsländerna. Thomas Malthus gjorde den berömda förutsägelsen att jorden inte skulle kunna stödja sin växande befolkning, men tekniker som den gröna revolutionen har gjort det möjligt för världen att producera ett överskott av mat.

Trots att den gröna revolutionen först ökade risskördarna betydligt i Asien jämnades avkastningen sedan ut. Den genetiska "avkastningspotentialen" har ökat för vete, men avkastningspotentialen för ris har inte ökat sedan 1966, och avkastningspotentialen för majs har "knappt ökat på 35 år". Det tar bara ett decennium eller två för herbicidresistenta ogräs att dyka upp, och insekter blir resistenta mot insektsmedel inom ungefär ett decennium, även om växelbruk gör att det försenas något.
