Title:
The man who tried to feed the world
Summary:
1966, drought and an exploding population confronted India with the imminent threat of a severe famine, a potential disaster that many scientists and intellectuals feared only presaged global catastrophes to come, as the world's population outstripped its ability to produce food. In search of a lasting solution, India turned to Norman Borlaug, an unassuming plant breeder from Iowa whose combination of scientific knowledge and raw determination had made him a legend.
