THE FIRST GREEN REVOLUTION WASN’T GREEN

The Green Revolution is the term used to describe the

transformation in agricultural practices in many parts of the developing

world between 1940 and the 1960s.-

And the Green Party are not about greening

but creating a wilderness of the Countryside,

When they talk about sustainability they mean the opposite

from what the Green Revolution did to food production but with the same results.

To sustain life we must grow more food and that food

will be from ruminants who eat grass as much as other green food,

because 80% of Britain’s farmland only grows grass

The Green Revolution was a disaster for food production

and as a result of it most countries produced less food 

In the 1980’s, 490million were classed as seriously undernourished

and another 800 million as merely undernourished.

One example was the Philippines

where paddy fields supported fish until the miracle rice plants

needed fertilizer and pesticides which killed the fish,

produced more rice and less protein.

In agriculture it is all according to the weather what can be grown.

In the UK traditionally Dairy and Livestock rearing in the wetter

but warmer, poorer lands of the  North and West

and Corn, Roots and Vegetables in the better lands of the South and East.

Even so the markets dictated results so “Up Corn Down Horn” and vis a versa

Today British farms are sustainable. They have to be, to have succeeded for 300 years.

Those that adopted the Green Revolution methods soon discovered the problems.

Including “Organic” farming where productivity depends

on lower yields and higher retail prices.

Today the issue is all about “Market Gardens” which is a small farm,

allotment or back garden,which produces for self sufficiency

or  sells vegetables, salad or fruit directly to consumers and/or restaurants.

A variety of different plants are grown,

with the emphasis on continual production throughout the year.

This sort of production compliments the large farm supplying the supermarkets who bulk buy.

The next Green Revolution must not only deal with improved seed varieties,

fertilizers and herbicides but pests and pesticides as well.

 A reduction in productive land as a result of the world population reaching

7.7 billion with more mouths to feed on less acres.

What Britain needs is a British Brexit Agricultural Policy for Britain

instead of the lunatic scheme to pay farmers to remove livestock from the uplands

and allow it to become a wilderness.
