Archive for the ‘Green Revolution’ Category

The previous free offer has lapsed, but available on Kindle for 99 cents.

Today I received a notice from the Council of Agricultural Science and Technology that the Noel Vietmeyer, book Our Daily Bread: the Essential Norman Borlaug, is available free in digital form until midnight October 5th.  I can wholeheartedly endorse the book which tells the story of how a young farmer grew to change the world and save millions from starvation. He is known as a key contributor to the Green Revolution.

If you are interested in history, this is a great starting point.  If you are interested in a food secure world, it is also a good place to start thinking about solutions.  

And if you have children interested in farming or agriculture, or know of young people contemplating as career in agriculture, this is a story of an inspirational personal journey that they will find fascinating.
