Agricultural Revolution

Parent Category: Agriculture
An agricultural revolution is a period of agricultural development and agricultural advancement, including the invention of new agricultural equipment and farming methods. There has been more than one agricultural revolution, starting with the Neolithic Agricultural Revolution around 10,000BC. Followed by the Arab Agricultural Revolution in the 8th-13th centuries, the British Agricultural Revolution in the 17th-19th centuries, the American Agricultural Revolution of the 18th-19th centuries and the Green Revolution from 1943 to the late 1970's.
The Agricultural Revolution ended the need for nomadic society. The Neolithic people could settle down and stay in one place.Also, men were the farmers and hunters, and women were the gatherers. Men's hunting, farming, domestication of animals, and other work became more valued than womens' work,...

I can not find any important advances in agriculture that occurred in 1848. John Deere's steel plow came about 10 years earlier as did the mechanical threshing machine.
Government was largely nonexistent in most neo-lithic societies. Towards the end of the neo-lithic age increased competition for resources with rivals resulted in stratification (the process whereby people are divided into different classes) and a central management structure to organise responses...

This made it possible for peasants to do other things, such as weaving or making soap, on the manorial estates.The growth of towns gave peasants a place to run off...
Yes, the Agricultural Revolution preceded the Industrial Revolution.
Production went down around 90% using European farming systems. Native American systems used a Milpa type of planting system which produced around 30 million calories per acre, where European farming systems produced between 3 and 7.9 million calories per acre. A "Milpa" or "Milpas" farming system...
The agriculture revolutions affected the Neolithic societies because they had to adapt their behaviors from foraging to producing. This allowed them to get food much faster. They also had to stay in one place instead of migrating to find food, however this caused bacteria to start spreading.
The Neolithic no longer had to be nomadic, they had enough food, they no longer had to move around to find nut, berries, etc. People started using other skills like, making pottery, the farmer grew enough food people began trading, the villages grew and the first communities began.
Another name for agricultural revolution
It created extra wealth for the purchase of consumer goods.-appex
one disadvantage was that much land was wasted. because the farmers of that time didnt know how to keep soil fresh after growing wheat and barley, it took quite a while for the soil to regain its freshness again
The plow, the steam engine (which marked the end of use of oxen and draft horses), etc.
Because people back then had civilization going on so that it will develop more equation bacause notification
Prior to the use of the three field system, there was a two field system used. Under the three field system, a field was tilled and planted with a crop one year, tilled and plated with a different crop the next year, and allowed to lie fallow in the third year. By contrast, the two field system...
More food, more people, lower cost, more goods
It is likely women started this revolution, since men were often hunting. Women gathered plants and knew therefore more about them. They also stayed closer to the camp and probably choose at a site where a lot of edible plants grew naturally, after which they started taking care of them.
The overall population increased and food costs decreased.
Goverments were needed to conquer better farmlands
Greater food production triggered a population explosion.
The first people who used a primitive seed drill were the Sumerians at 1.500 BCE. The seed drill was reinvented by Camillo Torello in 1566 AD/ CE. IN 1701 a guy called Jethro Tull improved the drill.

Enclosures, crop rotation, increase technology
The agricultural revolution dramatically increased a farmer's ability to produce crops. The technique of crop rotation allowed farm land to be used continually. Machinery allowed ever larger areas to be worked
it originated in England (if what you're talking about is the industrial revolution).
Farming became a more common thing and people started to live in  permanent homes
I am not going to go into the history of each of those topics, but take into consideration the Columbian Exchange as the very beginning of the other two events, it is when America was first beginning to become the new world, and as time went on, and the Native Americans were made scarce by disease...
The last period of glaciation had an indirect impact on agriculture as humans were hunter/gatherers during that time, agriculture only starting after the end of the glaciation. In high latitudes debris from the glaciers would have affected the types of soil available for farming and river courses...
before the Agricultural Revolution communities were moving place to place to find more food and animals after the Agricultural Revolution the communities found that they can domesticate their animals and crops. Then the communities started to build permanant settlements.
More food better farming equipment and less hunger
Well, one contribution of agriculture to the industrial revolution was an ever-increasing need for more and better farm machinery. In the era just before the automobile, many of the largest manufacturers in America were partially or totally dedicated to producing farm machinery. With the automotive...
Wealthy landowners, began buying up much of the land that village farmers had once worked. The large landowners dramatically improved farming methods. These innovations amounted to an agricultural revolution.
Better agriculture, leads to better feeding of the people, leads to less malnutrition, especially of children. Less infant and early childhood mortality leads to more children reaching adulthood. In adulthood, these members of society produce yet more children. The population continues to grow.

Although recipes and conditions are fairly strict for quality control, making beer is one of the simplest things to make. You only need water...
Agricultural revolution lead to urbanization. More food production meant less workers needed leading to movement to cities
 Humans settled down and begun to expand when they started to farm  the land, instead of going from place to place after prey.  
Cultures began to rotate the crops they planted each year. This  helped to preserve the soil so it did not dry out and they received  greater yields.
