Current sustainable agriculture and biotechnological advancement, incuding the creation of genetically modified organisms could never have been possible without the Green Revolution. Reducing the height of the stalk allowed the production of high-yielding cultivars that now are used and modified with genetic engeneering methods in the context of a sustainable agriculture.
