Message from the Greatest Agricultural Scientist, India ever witnessed

Agriculture is the basic staple of our country. Because of agriculture a state like Kerala could achieve nutrition security. Kerala means coconut. Coconut has been a multi-income crop, providing not only coconut oil, but also coconut meal and various coconut substitutes. Coconut because of its nutritional and other multiple use, became very popular in Kerala. Agriculture and allied sectors should give due emphasis on coconut farming and related industries. I wish Amrita School of Agriculture will give due emphasis to such sectors in the region and all my wishes to such endeavours.

Dr. M. S. Swaminathan, World Renowned Agricultural Scientist

 

Dr. M. S. Swaminathan is the most renowned Indian Agricultural Scientist and science administrator, who made a stellar contribution in the success of India's Green Revolution program; the program went a long way leading to a productivity boom and making India self-sufficient in wheat and rice production. He was deeply influenced by his father who was a surgeon and social reformer. After graduating in zoology, he enrolled in Madras Agricultural College and graduated with a B.Sc. in Agricultural Science. His choice of a career as a geneticist was influenced by the great Bengal famine of 1943 during which scarcity of food resulted in many deaths. Philanthropic by nature, he wanted to help poor farmers to increase their food production. He began his career by joining the Indian Agricultural Research Institute in New Delhi and eventually played the lead role in India's 'Green Revolution', an agenda under which high-yielding varieties of wheat and rice were made available to poor farmers. In the decades that followed, he held research and administrative positions in various offices of Government of India and also in a lead role in various committees that eventually instrumental in achieving agricultural development and framing policy frameworks. He has been acclaimed by the TIME magazine as one of the twenty most influential Asians of the twentieth century. He has also been honored with several national and international awards for his contribution to the field of agriculture and biodiversity.
