Correct Answer - Option 1 : Wheat

The correct answer is Wheat.

  • Wheat crops witnessed the maximum rate of increase of production due to the Green Revolution in India.
  • The Green Revolution started in 1965 with the first introduction of High Yielding Variety (HYV) seeds in Indian agriculture.
  • This was coupled with better and efficient irrigation and the correct use of fertilizers to boost the crop.
    • The result of the Green Revolution was to make India self-sufficient when it came to food grains.
  • These HYV seeds had more success with the wheat crop and were highly effective in regions that had proper irrigation.

  • In 1965, the government with the help of Indian geneticists M.S. Swaminathan, known as the father of the Green Revolution, launched the Green Revolution.
    • The movement lasted from 1967 to 1978 and was a great success.
