The Green Revolution, or Third Agricultural Revolution, is a set of research technology transfer initiatives occurring between and the late s, that increased agricultural production worldwide, particularly in the developing world, beginning most markedly in the late s. The initiatives resulted in the adoption of new technologies, including high-yielding varieties (HYVs) of cereals. Latin America as a region has multiple nation-states, with varying levels of economic complexity. The Latin American economy is an export-based economy consisting of individual countries in the geographical regions of North America, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. The socioeconomic patterns of what is now called Latin America were set in the colonial era when the .
History of technology - History of technology - The Industrial Revolution (–): The term Industrial Revolution, like similar historical concepts, is more convenient than precise. It is convenient because history requires division into periods for purposes of understanding and instruction and because there were sufficient innovations at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries to. 15 Emerging Agriculture Technologies That Will Change The World predictions based on consultation with experts of when each technology will be human health and our environment.
In this special issue of Evolutionary Applications, we draw together a series of diverse studies that provide a sample of some of the ways in which evolution driven by both conscious and unconscious selection by humans has shaped the development of modern lture has been a crucible of evolutionary change ever since its inception thousands of years ago, and this change Cited by: The last WDR on agriculture was in , marking the beginning of a 25 years hiatus during which the attention given to agriculture by governments and development agencies declined — a period during which huge changes have occurred in globalization, integrated supply chains, technology, institutions and the environment, making it imperative.
