(i) Imagine you are preparing for an elocution competition and you wish to speak on the topic ‘Green Revolution.” Draft a speech in about 150 words on the given topic.

Topic:- Green Revolution.

Good morning, everyone. Honourable chairperson, respected judges, respected teachers, and my dear friends! As a participant of this  elocution competition, I would like to speak on the topic,’ Green Revolution’.

Friends!  You might have heard the words like Industrial Revolution, Political Revolution, White Revolution and Green Revolution. What is Revolution? Yes, it means  a great change often as a result of progress. And what is the Green Revolution? Right. Green Revolution means the change in agriculture. It is associated with agricultural production. It resulted in increased production of food grains.(Especially, wheat and rice)

Well, friends, can you tell me the name of a person who used the term Green Revolution, first? Yes, it was used by William S. Gaud from the U.S. While Norman Borlaug is called the father of Green  Revolution in the world.

Friends, I think, you know the father of Indian Green Revolution. Correct. Monkomb Sambasivan Swaminathan (M. S. Swaminathan).

Friends, we all know that our country is an agricultural country .In the past, farming  was being done in a traditional manner i.e. ploughing, cultivating ,harvesting  were done manually. Our Indian agriculture depends on the monsoon. There is no guarantee of rain. So, there is no guarantee of yielding. That’s why Indian agriculture is called the gamble on monsoon. Most of the people died of famine.

But now the situation is quite different. Most of the work of farming is being done with the help of machines like tractors, harvesters, Cultivators and so on. There are many hybrid seeds that give more yielding. Green Revolution increased the availability and use of fertilizers, weedicides, pesticides, sprays to reduce the damage or loss of the crops.

Friends, everything has two sides, good and bad. Likewise, the Green Revolution also has two sides i.e.  advantages and disadvantages. Its benefits are, it reduces  greenhouse gas emission and it has helped to reduce the occurrence of famine and malnutrition. But it has some disadvantages such as soil degradation due to the use of pesticides, chemical fertilizers or irrigation, water pollution, health problems due to pesticides, increase mosquito borne disease, reduce ground water level etc.

Friends, on seeing the advantages and disadvantages, we come to know that disadvantages are much more than the advantages. Anyway, it’s today’s need. So, we should look at it positively as it increases the production of food grains to feed the increasing population.

Friends, I hope you understood the concept of Green Revolution. We have to change ourselves as per the  present situation. So, be positive, think positive.

Have a good day!

Thank you.

Topic:- Green Revolution.

Honourable chief guest, respected teachers and my dear friends! Today I’m going to deliver a speech on the topic “Green Revolution”. ‘Green revolution’ refers to a period of significant agricultural advancements that took place in the mid-20th century, primarily in the 1960s and 70s. It was a time when new technologies and farming practices were introduced to increase food production and address the global food crisis.

During this period, scientists and researchers developed and promoted high-yielding varieties of crops, such as wheat and rice. These new crop varieties were more resistant to diseases, pests, and environmental conditions, resulting in higher yields. Additionally, modern irrigation methods, like the use of sprinklers and drip irrigation, were implemented to ensure efficient water usage and maximize crop growth.

Chemical fertilizers also played a crucial role in the Green Revolution. They provided essential nutrients to the soil, boosting crop productivity. Farmers were encouraged to use these fertilizers to replenish soil nutrients and achieve better yields.

The Green Revolution had a profound impact on agriculture and food production. It helped to alleviate hunger, increase food security, and improve the livelihoods of millions of people around the world. By increasing crop yields, it made it possible to feed a growing global population.

However, it’s important to note that the Green Revolution also had some negative consequences. The intensive use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides led to environmental concerns, such as soil degradation and water pollution. Additionally, the focus on high-yielding varieties led to a loss of crop diversity and a decline in traditional farming practices.

Overall, the Green Revolution was a significant turning point in agricultural history. It demonstrated the power of scientific advancements and innovation in addressing global food challenges. Today, we continue to build upon the achievements of the Green Revolution, striving for sustainable and environmentally friendly farming practices to ensure food security for future generations.

I conclude my speech, Thank you…!!


Topic:- Green Revolution.

Honourable Judges, teachers and my dear friends!

Today, I stand before you to shed light on the transformative phenomenon known as the Green Revolution. The Green Revolution, which unfolded in the mid-20th century, marked a crucial turning point in agriculture, spearheading innovations that significantly increased food production.

Characterized by the adoption of high-yielding crop varieties, advanced agricultural practices, and the widespread use of fertilizers and pesticides, the Green Revolution aimed to address the pressing issue of global food scarcity. The vision was clear: to enhance agricultural productivity and alleviate hunger on a global scale.

India experienced remarkable increase in crop yields. M.S. Swaminathan know as the father of Green Revolution was an architect and pioneer in the beginning of Green Revolution in India. Wheat, rice, and maize, among others, flourished, lifting millions out of poverty and ensuring a more secure food supply. The Green Revolution not only increased food production but also catalyzed economic growth in many developing nations.

However, it is crucial to acknowledge both the successes and challenges associated with this agricultural transformation. While the Green Revolution contributed to feeding a growing population, it also posed environmental concerns. Excessive use of chemical inputs led to soil degradation, water pollution, and a loss of biodiversity. This prompts us to reflect on the need for sustainable and environmentally friendly agricultural practices.

As we stand at the intersection of progress and environmental stewardship, it becomes imperative to forge a path forward that combines the lessons learned from the Green Revolution with a commitment to sustainable agriculture. Embracing technology, precision farming, and agroecological approaches can pave the way for a new green paradigm that not only ensures food security but also safeguards our planet for future generations.

In conclusion, the Green Revolution undeniably played a pivotal role in reshaping the landscape of global agriculture. Yet, as we navigate the challenges of the 21st century, let us strive for a new era of agricultural innovation—one that harmonizes productivity with environmental sustainability. Together, we can cultivate a greener and more resilient future for our planet.

Thank you.


Topic:- Green Revolution.

Respected judges, Principal, teachers and my competitors like shining stars in the sky. Very pleasant and warm good morning to one and all presented over here in the Brri. P.G. Patil Auditorium of KBP College, Vashi, Navi-mumbai.

Today, I stand before you to shed light on a pivotal moment in agricultural history – the Green Revolution. Born out of necessity to combat hunger and poverty, this movement transformed agriculture on a global scale.

The Green Revolution introduced high-yielding crop varieties, modern farming techniques, and increased the use of fertilizers and pesticides. Its impact was profound, significantly boosting food production and averting widespread famine.

However, as we celebrate its successes, we must also acknowledge its challenges. Environmental degradation, soil depletion, and dependence on chemical inputs pose significant threats to sustainability.

Therefore, as stewards of the earth, it is our responsibility to steer the Green Revolution towards a greener and more sustainable future. Embracing organic farming practices, promoting biodiversity, and harnessing technology for precision agriculture are crucial steps in this journey.

Let us pledge to honor the legacy of the Green Revolution by cultivating not just crops, but a harmonious relationship with nature. Together, let’s sow the seeds of a greener tomorrow.
Thank you very much for your listening patiently.
