Abstract

The term, Green Revolution, has long been used for describing increase in food production through the improvement of breeding systems and agricultural infrastructure in developing countries. However, ‘White Revolution’ has only been used in South Korea, the name derived from the extensive use of plastic films (polyethylene film) for greenhouse, mulching and tunnel in field, which turns the color of the landscape into white due to the large acreage under protected cultivation. This report defines ‘White Revolution’ as the period of modernization of structure, material and technology for greenhouse to achieve the rapid expansion of protected cultivation area and stable supply of vegetables, from 1970s to 1990s.
Economic growth as well as the government plans and policies enabled the rapid expansion of protected cultivation using greenhouses in a very short period of time, the drastic changes called ‘White Revolution’. Due to the success of the series of five-year NEDPs since 1962, economic growth leaded to the expansion of consumer markets for fresh vegetablesproduced in greenhouse over the winter season.
