Farming Revolution?

Second-level thinking - effects of effects.
A wonderful article about a potential new green revolution using a farming technique called System of Root Intensification or SRI - farmers in Bihar managed to get ridiculously high yields .

And a good video explaining SRI

How would this impact the rural economy?
The pesticides companies?
The seeds companies?
Actual food production?
The irrigation and micro-irrigation companies?
Can this be adopted by larger fields / across geographies?
Could this really be a revolution within the next 2-5 years?
