From Wikipedia: "Norman Ernest Borlaug (March 25, 1914 to September 12, 2009) was an American biologist, humanitarian and Nobel laureate who has been called 'the father of the Green Revolution,' 'agriculture's greatest spokesperson,' and 'The Man Who Saved A Billion Lives.' He is one of seven people to have won the Nobel Peace Prize, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and the Congressional Gold Medal; he was also awarded the Padma Vibhushan, India's second highest civilian honor. During the mid-20th century, Borlaug led the introduction of these high-yielding varieties combined with modern agricultural production techniques to Mexico, Pakistan, and India. As a result, Mexico became a net exporter of wheat by 1963. Between 1965 and 1970, wheat yields nearly doubled in Pakistan and India, greatly improving the food security in those nations. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970 in recognition of his contributions to world peace through increasing food supply." First Edition [stated]. First printing [stated].
