3)Crop TFP growth is negligible for countries not realising a Green Revolution and highest for countries with highest levels of GRMV adoption.
Scientists per million hectares of cropland rise with higher levels of GRMV adoption.
No correlation between extension workers per million hectares of cropland and GRMV adoption exists.
Only countries in 30-40 percent GRMV clusters and above have industrial competitiveness.
2) The average population of countries in 1960 and 2000 rises as GRMV adoption rises.
3) in 1960, birth rates were similar across GRMV clusters.
4) Child mortality rates in 1960 were similar in most GRMV clusters.
5) Dietary Energy Sufficiency (DES) was similar for all GRMV clusters in 1960.
GDP per capita for the next three GRMV clusters rose from 1960 to 2000 by 56 percent.
The second GRMV cluster did have a small Green Revolution, but they too are small countries (Mozambique and Uganda being largest with populations around 7 million in 1960).
For developing countries, crop TFP growth rates have been high except for the lowest GRMV clusters.
The highest GRMV cluster produces about five times as much crop value per hectare as do the lowest four clusters.
