  • Q1

    Which of the following is an output of the scien-tific experiments by scientists involved in the Green Revolution?

    chemical fertilizers 

    domesticated cereal grains 

    mechanical farm equipment

    high-yield seed varieties 

    irrigation systems 

  • Q2

    Which of the following statements best explains a limitation of the Green Revolution?

    The Green Revolution was effective only in developing improved strains of rice.

    Farmers declined to participate in the Green Revolution on cultural and religious grounds.

    Green Revolution technology could not over-come the limitations of traditional irrigation systems.

    The population increased at a dramatic rate, and the Green Revolution advances were not effective in decreasing hunger.

    The Green Revolution was not effective in Africa because the initial focus was on crops that were not native to Africa.

  • Q3

    Based on studies in the Philippines on night-time temperatures and the effect on agricultural crops, there is a growing concern among scientists regarding the continued expansion of the food base to feed the world’s population due to the threat of


    decreasing rainfall 

    global warming

    cooler nights

    longer days

  • Q4

    The following image illustrates which characteristic of the Green Revolution?

    Question Image



    chemical fertilization


    increased wealth 

  • Q5

    Which of the following best explains how the Green Revolution illustrates patterns of hierarchi-cal diffusion?

    The patterns of soil salinity that have serious effects on the productivity of agricultural land in Mexico

    The infestation of pests in Africa for which pes-ticides or disease-resistant plants have not yet been developed

    The cost of the capital expenditures for Green Revolution seeds and technology that widens the gap between wealthy farmers and poor farmers in India

    The setting up of seed banks in the American Corn Belt to preserve what remains of domes-tic varieties of corn

    The exposure of all farm workers in Latin America to poisonous chemicals that may lead to the evolution of superpests

  • Q6

    During the Green Revolution, agricultural practices from more developed countries diffused to less developed countries in Asia and Africa. Which of the following best explains the Green Revolution's highly variable level of success in increasing agricultural yields?

    The increased yield of the Green Revolution in sub-Saharan Africa decreased the incidence of famine, but the program was unsuccessful in India because of poor soil quality.

    Small-scale farmers in Asia often lacked the resources necessary to acquire the hybrid seeds and the chemical inputs to grow them, leaving large gaps in the success of the Green Revolution outside of urban cores.

    The Green Revolution was not successful in China because the strain of rice produced was prone to widespread crop failures, and China dropped out of the program.

    Rice production surpassed all other crop production in sub-Saharan Africa, but corn production in Mexico was less successful because of the negative impact on the environment.

    Persistent famine has occurred in India since new technologies associated with the Green Revolution were implemented because only the wealthy could afford the increased cost of the improved strains of rice.

  • Q7

    Between 1950 and 1990, wheat production in India in average pounds per acre more than tripled, which allowed India to meet its population’s need for food. Which of the following best explains this change?

    The elimination of poverty in India’s rural regions

    The use of genetically modified seeds 

    The increase in microloan programs that provide farmers with credit

    The use of large farm tractors and combine harvesters 

    The use of improved plant hybrids and agricultural chemicals

  • Q8

    In less developed countries, pesticides are typically applied by hand, whereas pesticides are typically applied by tractors or aircraft in more developed countries. Which of the following best explains the risks associated with pesticide applications?

    Crop dusters are at risk when applying pesticides with aircraft in more developed countries, whereas environmental pollution is a risk in less developed countries.

    Farm animals used to plow fields are at risk from pesticides in more developed countries, whereas environmental pollution is a risk is less developed countries.

    Farmers' health is at risk in less developed countries, whereas environmental pollution is a risk in more developed countries.

    Crops are at risk in more developed countries, whereas environmental pollution is a risk in less developed countries.

    Crops are at risk in more developed countries, whereas environmental pollution is a risk in less developed countries.

  • Q9

    Green Revolution technology has resulted in which of the following in modernagriculture?

    The development of high-yield grains and the expansion of cultivated areas

    The construction of new irrigation systems and a reduction in the use of fertilizers

    An increase in the circulation of investment capital to help the poorest farmers

    The loss of prime agricultural land and smaller yields from grain crops

    The end of famine in the world 

  • Q10

    Which of the following agricultural inputs were the most recent technological innovations employed in less developed countries during the Green Revolution?

    Metal plows and harvesting equipment

    Irrigated farm fields 

    Seed hybrids and animal breeds

    Chemical fertilizers and pesticides 

    Terracing in highland terrain

  • Q11

    In which of the following world regions has the Green Revolution had the least impact on agriculture?

    East Asia

    South Asia

    Southeast Asia 

    Central America

    Sub-Saharan Africa

  • Q12

    Which of the following best explains a neo-Malthusian perspective on the Green Revolution?

    The Green Revolution represents a jump in agricultural technology, but population will still grow faster than our ability to produce food will over the long run.

    The Green Revolution solves the entire problem of feeding the planet, and Malthusian ideas are no longer relevant.

    Local food production is the key to long-term food production.

    The distribution of food in a capitalist system results in too many people being unable to afford basic foods.

    The increase in the food supply and a resulting increase in the population available for farm labor will solve the food crisis.
