Sombir Soni

The Green Revolution refers to a set of research and the development of technology transfer initiatives occurring between the 1930s and the late 1960s, that increased agricultural production worldwide, particularly in the developing world, beginning most markedly in the late 1960. One of the main consequences of ‘green revolution’ in Haryana had been a rapid ‘enlargement of agricultural income. As a result, Haryana emerged as a second richest state in India during 1960 – 70. Although secondary and territory sectors had also contributed to the growth of income in the state. The impact of green revolution is most obvious in the emerging pattern of consumption in rural Haryana. The green revolution in Haryana helped to increase the output, income and production of all categories of cultivator’s who had adopted the new technology. New technology created a demand for more labour indicating that the ‘green revolution had also had to enlarge employment of labour because basically the green revolution was both capital and labour intensive.
