The Wall Street Journal has created an online video that discusses the Green Revolution of the 1960s and 1970s.  It explains that fertilizers were used to increase crop yields so that India could produce enough food to meet its own needs.  This video now reports that the overuse of fertilizer has "degraded the farmland."
