Transcript of Agricultural Density

Definition:
The population density measured as the number of farmers per unit area of arable land.
Example:
Our real world connection is the Irish Potato Famine. This is an excellent case in history because when the potato harvest was rotten (the disease that caused the crop to be rotten was called the potato blight.) the agricultural density decreased dramatically because people were moving away for a better life.
