Green Revolution Super Rice

A Green Revolution Super Rice who can maintain a variety of potential yield by using less expensive agrochemical inputs. Green Revolution is arguably the biggest victory of modern agriculture. Through the development and introduction of new varieties of cereals and technology, is expected to help feed millions of people who would otherwise become victims of food shortages globally.

However, the green revolution has some unintended consequences: 

1). The use of high yielding varieties that perform best by absorbing large amounts of expensive nitrogen-rich fertilizers which eventually flows into and polluted ponds, lakes, and underground water.

2). Widespread use of agricultural chemicals to control pests and diseases in some crops has affected the ecosystem and human health. 

3). In addition, many farmers who do not have the resources to buy agricultural chemicals.

If they use a variety of high productivity without the use of fertilizer in accordance with the recommendation, such varieties will fail. This could push the already cash-strapped farmers, increasingly fall into bankruptcy.

Can agriculture continue to feed the world without reciprocity? The answer can! For IRRI has conducted several trials in South Asia and Southeast Asia, with Green Super Rice (GSR) for the-poor in Africa and Asia, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Unlike most modern varieties, strains of GSR can maintain high yield potential, even using less expensive chemical inputs. Depending on the nature, the GSR can be grown in environmental conditions that will make others a bit less productive varieties.
