APRIL 2010

Dr Norman Borlaug The foundation for Biotechnology Awareness and Education deeply memories the passing away of Prof. Norman Borlaug, the Chief Architect of India’s Green Revolution. Norman Borlaug was a true pioneer in solving world’s hunger in the 60’s, and but for him Milionis of people would have perished due to starvation. Norman Borlaug was a champion of GM crops and use of modern biotechnology in agriculture.

Boring from AgBioview, we present many tributes paid to this great soul. We wish to convey to his family our deep condolences and pray his guiding spirit lead as all to ever greater food security and prosperity of agriculture in the developing world.
