MANN NEW DELHI (AP) The seeds of the Green Revolution have failed to solve India's ancient scourage of famine- Even miracle seeds need water, and water is a luxury in this time of drought. The high-yield seeds for which the American agrono- mist, Dr. Norman Borlaug, won a Nobel Prize have helped ease India's perpetual food crisis. But they have not come close to fulfilling the predic- tions of the middle 1960s that famine would be eradicated forever from the Indian sub- continent. "It's still a fact thai you have to have water to said a foreign expert whose has dealt with India's elforts to adapt tha Borlaug efforts to India. The success of the miracle grain has been spectacular in areas that have escaped drought or have workable irri- gation heat- growing northern states of Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, for example. Government statistics show annual wheat yields grown from 10 to 12 million tons eight years ago to 26 5 million last year and an esti- mated 30 million Ions this year. MONSOONS FAIL Much of central India re- mains, however, to the worst drought in years. The govern- ment acknowledges that it is the worst in a decade, and un- official experts say there has been nothing similar in a cen- tury. The last severe drought, in 1966-67. affected mainly Bihar State in eastern India. The government had to import more than 14 million tons of food grains to prevent mass starvation. This year, agriculture is at a standstill in all of Rajas- than. Gujarat and Maharash- tra, large west-central states where as many as six consec- utive monsoons have failed, and neighboring parts of My- sore and Andhra and Madhya Pradesh. Regions of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar also are affected. Yet the government claims it has had to import only 3'-2 million tons of food grains though it acknowledges a few million tons more will be needed. Annasahcb P. Shindc, the minister of stole for agricul- ture, told parliament recently lhal the government already has obtained internally almost twice the 310.000 tons of wheat it had taken in at the same caiK-hanest time last jear Internal procurement of wheat fahoulrl exceed eight million tons, he said. XEED IRKIGVIION Miracle grains would have had a greater impact but for the lack of irrigation systems in the affected regions. Espe- cially in Bihar, a state that geologists say sits above a huge underground water sup- p 1 y, government scientists have been working to reduce fanners' reliance on the er- ratic rains. The secret of miracle grains is that they mature quickly, allowing a farmer to plant moic than one crop a vcar. Borlaug's experiments wore wheat, and his strains have adapted well in India. But many 'ndians' staple food is rice. The International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines, financed by the Ford Foundation, has devel- oped quick-maturing strains of rice that have been un- dergoing study in India. "They didn't catch on with the Indian consumer, mainly because they taste like said a Western agri- culturist. "Now the Indians are trying to rebuild the strains to give them an ac- ceptable taste." Unless the problem of water is solved, however, there is little hope for a real break- through. Rice requires more water than wheat because paddies must be submerged for several weeks.
