Abstract:

The development of new High Yielding Varieties of foodgrains by Professor Borlaug and his team as well as their implementation in numerous agricultural areas of the Third World countries has generated the process, commonly known as the Green Revolution.The author of the present paper attempts to find the answer to the following questions:

  • to what degree the Green Revolution is a process of development of traditional agriculture and
  • what changes in spatial organization occur after its implementation.

The discussion presented pertains mainly to Indian agriculture. For a pro-per evaluation of the Green Revolution, it is indispensable to introduce a gen-eral concept of traditional agriculture as well as to determine basic trends of spatial development. These problems will be presented in Parts I and II.
