It is called thed the Green Revolution. It began sometime after World War II by an agronomist working in Mexico by the name of Norman Boralug, PhD. Borlaug was a U.S. citizen raised in northern Iowa. His methods of raising crops increased production dramatically. It included changes in irrigation, adding more fertilizer, using pesticides and herbicides, and increased mechanization, along with plant breeding.
The Green Revolution lasted from the very early 1950s through the 1980s. Although Dr. Borlaug was awarded a Nobel Prize around 1970, the methods of the Green Revolution came under scrutiny due to excesses in the use of chemicals, the breakdown of soil structure from repeated plowing, and some other practices that were regarded as environmentally detrimental.

The First Agricultural Revolution, also known as the Neolithic Revolution, is the transformation of human societies from hunting and gathering to farming. This transition occurred worldwide between 10,000 BC and 2000 BC, with the earliest known developments taking place in the Middle East.
The Second Agricultural Revolution, also known as the British Agricultural Revolution, took place first in England in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. From there it spread to Europe, North America, and around the world.
