The application of science to increasing agricultural productivity, including the breeding of high-yield varieties of grains, the effective use of pesticides, and improved fertilization, irrigation, mechanization, and soil conservation techniques.

The increase in the world production of cereals such as wheat and rice during the 1960s and 1970s because of better seed and new agricultural technology.
