|Personal Fact of Norman Borlaug
One of the most prominent biologists of the 20th century, Norman Borlaug is often referred to as The Man who Saved a Billion Lives and why wouldn’t he be? After all he is the man behind the Green Revolution which revolutionized the way farming was being conducted all over the world. Having spent his childhood in a large farm raising cattle and growing food crops, the young Norman had a great thirst for knowledge.
Though as a kid he attended a small school, he decided to pursue his higher education from the University of Minnesota. After completing his studies he could have opted for a lucrative job in the chemical industry but he choose to go to Mexico to research on creating high yielding crops. Over the course of his work he successfully developed disease resistant, high yielding wheat varieties which when combined with modern agricultural production techniques could dramatically change the way farming was done.
His discoveries and production techniques helped several hitherto food-deficient countries in Asia and Africa to achieve food security and helped to provide food for millions of starving people. He was presented with the Nobel Peace Prize for his immeasurable contributions towards feeding millions of people around the world.
