Transcript of Agriculture

Agriculture New Breeds Many English landowners saw that better farm animals would bring more money. New breeds of animals produced
more meat and ticker wool. It cost a lot of money to keep the animals during
the winter time, so they slaughtered and ate them. New animals were really expensive and they don't catch any disease. Keeping them was really expensive, so many farmers were caught in a money crunch. Landowners The landowners goal was to make an acre of land produce more crop and more money while lowering their own costs of raising crops. Jethro Tull "Turnip Townshend" helped make agriculture more profitable. Jethro Tull was an English inventor who tried
to understand the way soil helped plants grow.
(30 March 1674 - 21 February 1741) He found that when soil was broken up, or cultivated and enriched with manure or fertilizer, crops grew much better. Tull invented a planting machine, called "seed drill" which could be pulled by horses. Seed Drill This invention planted seeds neatly in rows and was faster and much less wasteful than the other method of broadcasting. Many more seeds sprouted,
instead of being eaten by animals. This machine made crops maitenance much easier. The seed drill made it possible to farm with fewer people. Lord Townshend He was an English lord who had also been
an important politician and was
a wealthy landowner.
(19 January 1757-23 February 1833) Townshend had a great interest in agriculture and when he retired he devoted himself to make the farms better. He found that by growing four crops- turnips, barley, grasses an wheat in rotation (turnips one year, barley the second year, grasses the third year, and wheat the fourth year and then repeating the cycle) as much as crops could be produced. Crops Turnips and clover could be used to feed animals over the winter. The four crops rotation made it easier to maintain more animals during the year. This improved animal breeds, cultivation, seeding and crops rotation all made farms more productive. Population The population in towns grew quickly, especially in England, and an area called "The Midlands". Manchester and Liverpool changed from really little towns into big cities. The growth of cities and towns was possible thanks to the agriculture that increased the amount of food and made it possible for fewer farmers to feed large city populations.
The Agricultural Revolution made Britain have a big number of population, from 1750 reached the level of 5.7 million. The population had more sources, like food and clothing. For the women they could only work in the home,separated them from the mechanised areas of work, leading to a division between women and men. THAT'S ALL FOLKS! Andrea Manzano
Industrial Revolution
Grade-9 The British Agricultural Revolution, was the development in Britain between the 17 century and the end of the 19 century which saw a massive increase in agricultural productivity. This helped the population grow and feed more people as well give them more clothes. There were new inventors who changed history, like Jethro Tull, who invented the "Seed Drill" and Lord Townshend who discover the "The Four Crops Rotation" all this tenchonology really helped agriculture. This is why, this is the Agricultural Revolution.
