CERUTTI, Mario. Trigo y revolución verde en el noroeste de México (1930-1970). Mundo agrar. [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.43, pp.103.e1-103.e2. ISSN 1515-5994.

This analysis will focus on changes in the Northwest of Mexico since the great irrigation was in charge of the State, with special emphasis in the objectives that led to set up these irrigation systems in the North (covering 60 % of the territory); in its construction in the Yaqui Valley (Sonora), which radically expanded the agricultural frontier; in the irruption of the green revolution and its most explosive expression: the wheat; and the institutional legacy of Norman Borlaug.

Keywords : Yaqui Valley; Great irrigation; Wheat; Green revolution; Mexico.
