The "Green Revolution" of the 1960s and 1970s produced an unprecedented growth in agriculture in developing countries. The authors of this Brief examine the Green Revolution's impacts on agricultural production and its social impacts. They then turn to the problems it may have engendered as documented in the empirical literature on the affect of agricultural technological on poor farmers. They conclude with some recommendations about the conditions under which the Green Revolution and similar yield-enhancing technologies are likely to have equitable benefits among farmers.
