Transcript of Agricultural Density
The population density measured as the number of farmers per unit area of arable land.
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.
Real World Connections:
1.) What is agricultural density?
2.) In what year did the potato famine begin?
3.) How did the famine affect the agricultural density of Ireland?
1.) The population density measured as the number of farmers per unit of arable land.
3.) The agricultural density decreased dramatically because the Irish farmers were moving away for a better life.
4.) The potato blight.
5.) 1846 & 1850
6.) The U.S.
What it is, What affects it, and examples of each.
