Green Revolution Technologies have made India self-sufficient in food production but unable to sustain soil productivity. A quantum leap in production of over 100 million tones was achieved in just two decades (1960-1970). But during the 1980s and 1990s it was a struggle to add on another 10 million tonnes despite good monsoons and the increasing supply of inputs of fertilizers, high yielding seeds, pesticides as well as water through irrigation. High costs of inputs have turned farming into a loss-making enterprise while leading to severe environmental degradation.
