Descriptif
Accordingly, the main objectives of the study may be listed as follows : i) to identify the pattern of regional variations in inten sity of the Green Revolution in Punjab ; ii) to examine the degree of spatial correspondence between the intensity of the Green Revolution and the degree of degradation of different components of ecology, such as vegetation, water table, soils and air ; and iii) to discern the economic, social and political consequences of these ecological implications.

The main questions posed for analysis in the present study may be stated as follows : What have been the negative as well as positive impacts of the Green Revolution on the ecology of Punjab ? Do the patterns of the Green Revolution intensity and those of ecological change, correspond with each other ? What have been the economic, social and political implications of the ecological change as related to the Green Revolution in Punjab ? Here we frame the following hypotheses : Contrary to popular notion, we envisage not only the negative fallouts of the Green Revolution but also some positive outcome vis-a-vis ecology of Punjab. The degree of damage to ecology, in terms of water table, soil, air and vegetation, will be related to the intensity of the Green Revolution. Ecological degradation increases the economic cost of agriculture, politicises the use of natural resources and affects society.
