Which event resulted in developing countries?

The Green Revolution was a significant rise in food grain production (particularly wheat and rice) that occurred in large part from the introduction of new, high-yielding cultivars into emerging nations beginning in the mid-20th century. The revolution is credited with reducing the number of starving people in the world from about 1 billion to 600 million over the same period.

It began in America where scientists developed several new varieties of wheat that were more resistant to insects and drought. These new strains increased the amount of yield per unit area about tenfold, from 10 to 100 pounds per square foot. They did this by removing the grain from most American farms, because it was too small and would go bad before it could be sold. But the scientists had also improved the quality of the grain so that even if the heads didn't produce as much, the remaining kernels were larger and easier to digest.

American farmers adopted these new strains quickly. By 1960, nearly all of them were being grown annually instead of just once as a fall crop. That's when things started to change in Asia and Africa. Farmers there had no choice but to use these new types of wheat because they were all that was available. And since the Americans were removing their smaller grains, those countries were left with only the big starchy cuds that were difficult to process into flour.

What was the impact of the green revolution on developing countries?

The Green Revolution resulted in increased production of food grains (particularly wheat and rice), owing in large part to the introduction of new, high-yielding cultivars into developing nations beginning in the mid-20th century with Borlaug's efforts.

These new cultivars used fertilizer and improved irrigation techniques that made larger quantities of grain possible from each plant. The resulting increase in global food supply helped reduce hunger in many parts of the world where it had previously been a problem. However, the benefits were not equally shared; those who could afford to buy these new crops enjoyed the increased quantity and quality of available food, while those who could not be left hungry.

The new technologies involved in the Green Revolution came from industrialized countries, so it is not surprising that they are used in agriculture everywhere they are applied. In fact, since 1970, the number of people starving to death has dropped by almost half thanks to the Green Revolution -- but that still leaves about one in eight people around the world dying before their time because they cannot find sufficient food.

The future availability of food supplies will depend on whether we can continue to develop new cultivars that are resistant to pests and drought, as well as ways to preserve our food supplies during times of excess. Some scientists believe that genetically engineered plants may hold the answer to some of these problems, but much more research is needed before this technology can be widely adopted.

What series of events triggered the industrial growth?

Advances in agricultural technology and practices led in an increase in food and raw materials supply. Changes in industrial structure and new technology resulted in improved output, efficiency, and profitability, as well as an expansion in foreign and domestic trade, all of which contributed to the advent...

Of particular note is the rise in manufacturing industry, which accounted for almost half of Britain's exports at its peak in 1872-1890. Manufacturing products that were widely consumed required a large labor force; thus, it was not unusual for factories to have thousands of workers living in close proximity. The most advanced industries also used innovative technologies that paved the way for future developments.

Britain's entry into World War I in 1914 was another major stimulus to the economy. At that time, Britain was one of the world's leading powers, but the country was also heavily indebted. To pay off these debts, the government had to turn to the Bank of England to obtain funds. The bank raised its interest rate to 10 percent, which nearly caused a financial crisis because it was higher than any other country's rate at the time. However, by raising its rate, the bank was able to raise money enough to reduce its debt burden.

The war ended in 1918, but the economy remained weak due to high unemployment and inflation. Starting in 1920, there was a recession that lasted until 1923. This was followed by another depression that lasted from 1929 to 1939.

What major event marked the beginning of advanced civilization?

The Neolithic Revolution, often known as the Agricultural Revolution, was a shift in human history from small, nomadic bands of hunter-gatherers to bigger, agricultural communities and early civilization. It began around 7500 BC in what is now China and continued into the Middle East about 4000 years later.

This transition took place rather suddenly, with no clear evidence of any advance planning or communication needed for two groups of people living in different regions of the world to begin growing crops instead of hunting animals. Modern scientists think that this may have been due to the development of new types of plants that were more suitable for farming or tools that made it possible to work the land efficiently. Either way, it shows that humans can change their environment to meet their needs.

You may be wondering why I mentioned early civilization. The term "early civilization" means that these people were not truly capable of creating true civilization. They built cities, but they were still ruled by kings or other powerful people. It was not until much later that ordinary citizens started to have a voice in how they were governed.

So, the Neolithic Revolution was the start of advanced civilization? Not exactly. Even though they lived in larger communities, they still had not learned how to write. They did not use money, and they sold their products directly to others who wanted them.
