The Africa Green Revolution, Achievements, and Challenges in Agriculture

Desta Abayechaw


After the second Agricultural revolution in England, the third green revolution was started in India between 1955 to 1960s to increase food production and feed the millions of malnourished people throughout the nation and quickly spread to other countries. Green revolution emerged because of thinking about populations and the problem of hunger in very particular ways. Many Asian and other countries were immediately adopted the green revolution and accelerated the growth and poverty reduction dramatically. Africa has the potential for a green revolution but due to too late acceptance of the green revolution yet the yields are far below their potential and the use of modern inputs such as fertilizer and high-yielding varieties of seeds is extremely low. Therefore, to increase productivity and eliminate poverty from the people the focus of the Green Revolution for developing countries, especially for Africa is mandatory.
