Agronomist Norman Borlaug led a “Green Revolution” of agriculture programs estimated to have saved one billion lives. But some argue those efforts came with unintended consequences.
Today a history professor joins us to talk about Borlaug’s complicated legacy. The professor is featured in a new documentary about Borlaug, “The Man Who Tried To Feed The World,” which premiers tonight on PBS.
