The Second Agricultural Revolution
By: Truman Antah, Bliss Hutchings, Savannah Lyons, Carter Marks, Maggie Zheng
The second agricultural revolution shifted the foundation of agriculture from the sun to a new reliance on fossil fuel.
This period saw the development of new farming machinery. The revolution's major impact was the reduction in the number of people needed to operate farms.

Late 1700s- late 1800s
Great Britain, Netherlands, Denmark, and neighboring countries
The second agricultural revolution occurred to increase food production and allow for farmers to move to urban areas for factory work.
( Historians dispute when and how the agricultural revolution was accomplished. Consideration of food consumption demands convinced most that the agricultural revolution exactly coincided with the Industrial Revolution. )
Johann Heinrich created the Thümen Model, which is often described as the first effort to analyze the spatial character of economic activity.

Hall McCormick is credited as the inventor of the mechanical reaper, which greatly quickened farm work.
