Green Revolution: The Swaminathan wave

In India, the Green Revolution was spearheaded by MS Swaminathan. It resulted in a great increase in the production of food grains, especially wheat and rice, following the introduction of high-yielding variety seeds around mid-20th century.

The Green Revolution, spreading over the period from 1967-68 to 1977-78, changed India's status from a food-deficient country to one of the world's leading agricultural nations.
