Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, October 26, 1970 _ THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Underdeveloped Countries Regard It As Staff Of Life Few People In North America Grasp Revolution' Significance WASHINGTON (AP) Few people in North America can grasp the significance of the "green revolution." In Canada and the United States, where surplus wheat is a problem and cattle are fattened on grain, the development of ex- tremely high-yield strains of wheat and rice has little im- pact. But to millions of underfed persons living in overcrowded and underdeveloped lands, the "green revolution" is truly the staff of life. It has created so- cial unrest and toppled political leaders. Agricultural economist Lester R. Brown of the U.S. goes a step further in assessing its sig- nificance. technology rep- resented by these new seeds will probably affect more people in a shorter period1 of time than any technological change in his- tory." If the peoples of the world can learn to curtail their birth rate, Brown adds, the new grains "hold out hope that we can make substantial progress in eliminating hunger in most of the world in this decade." It was in recognition of this its 'prospects for e 1 i m i ii a t i n g starvation around the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded this week to Dr. Norman E. Borlaug, a former Iowa dirt farmer who pioneered develop- ment of the new strain of super wheat. The breakthrough ena- bled agronomists in 1962 to' re- peat the performance with rice. Essentially, the new grains are redesigned wheat and rice plants about half as tall as tra- ditional varieties.' The shorter stem permits farmers to ferti- lize the plants heavily and dou- ble the yield. Attempts at heavy fertilization of the traditional long, thin-stemmed varieties failed because the heavy bead of grain caused the plant to top- ple over. In addition, the new strains proved adaptable to a wide va- riety of climates. One leading agricultural ex- pert said the super grains have "added a conservative 20 mil- lion tons to cereal grains to the Asian food supply." All this has come about in Baroness Provides Excitement For The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRIDGE!

In 1970, more than 40 mil- lion acres of the new. strains were being cultivated. CROP RISES SIIAIU'LY In 1965, for example, India's wheat crop totalled 12 million tons..

And the political conse- quences are being felt. Prime Minister Dudley Senanayake of Ceylon was ousted this year partly because he did riot equit- ably distribute new shipments of super grains. Field Marshal Mo- hammed Ayub Khan was top- pled as president of Pakistan partly because of the inability of East Pakistan to grow the new grains. But experts warn that the new grains have only delayed from 10 to 20 years the food problems facing the world if the popula- tion continues to increase at its present rate. Thank you Canada!
