The Industrial Revolution is thought to be a result of the Agricultural Revolution. As each agricultural worker produced more food, and the number of agricultural workers declined and the number of industrial workers increased. The event that aided in the exploitation of the horse was the development of the lowly horse shoe and nails. This obviously helped greatly and permitted field work to be done under a wider range of soil and weather conditions, since the shoe gave greater traction and helped prevent hoof rot. Industrial Revolution Respond to each of the following questions in two to three sentences: 1.
These new, larger farms would pool the labour and resources and therefore operate more efficiently. In addition state provided tractors and fertilises would modernise production, again making the opponents more efficient. Stalin’s aim to modernise Russia with the idea of collectivisation would be staged in three parts; economic, political and ideological. I believe that the policy of collectivisation was set up to achieve its objectives however, if historians look at the failures alongside the aims, many were reversed and the outcome was the opposite of what was expected. There were economic factors that led to collectivisation.
They used the advantages of the rivers and the fertile land to shape their world through trade and agriculture. “Land between rivers” refers to the fertile valley between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers . Because of the arid environment, these early Mesopotamians resorted to using small scale irrigation techniques for agriculture. As agriculture developed and the population increased, they devised new ways to capture their most valuable resource in more elaborate ways. They understood that in order to sustain a large population and develop an ever expanding civilization, they wold need to channel the water, from long distances, into the desert.
Jared says, "People around the world who had access to the most productive crops becomes the most productive farmers". As the fertile crescent brought many great crops and animals that spread and Europeans people were able to gain access much earlier then other civilizations. In the first video Jared states
It is clear that the North South divide was a key reason for the weaknesses of the Liberal State in the years 1896 to1914. However, there are many other factors which affected the stability of the Liberal state such as weaknesses in Italian parliamentary government, opposition groups and the emergence of nationalist politics. In the years 1896 to 1914 the north and south of Italy were completely divergent, with the main difference being in the development of their respective economies. The fertile plains of northern Italy had an increasing number of prosperous farms using modern methods such as mechanised tools, fertilisers and irrigation schemes which made farming more efficient. In addition it was an area of diverse and profitable agriculture with crops such as grapes rice olives and maize alongside dairy farming.
This allowed the worlds to have more trade and the people to have more variety and things to eat. Lastly, another important effect is that farm land is much more common since people are now farming the newly discovered land. The amount of calories per hectare or 100 acres has greatly increased, as stated in document 8, which is helpful to nourish people and expand trade. All these things greatly helped civilization and the worlds at this time period. The negative and deadly effects of the discovery of the Americas were undoubtedly costly to civilizations and worlds, as I will state in the following paragraphs.
One of the main reasons for Ottawa's decision to acquire the Prairie Provinces was to create "a region of frontier settlement capable of rapid development and capable in turn of stimulating developments in other parts of the dominion” (MacPherson 6). The American influx originated from the country's Midwest and Great Plains states like Montana, Colorado, Nebraska, and the Dakotas, where unsettled farming land, formerly plentiful, was becoming very rare. The settlers rapidly increased wheat production in the west, and helped grow the Canadian economy through investments based off natural resource wealth. They were arguably even more influential, however, in their political ideology (MacPherson 7). Immigrants brought with them the classic liberal American ideas such as individualism, devotion to the free market and an aversion to large, centralized powers (“Imprint” 1).
Why did colonization take place? Well if you look at jarred diamonds theory he believes that it is all to do with geographical factors such as terrain, animals and food supply within a certain country. Colonization also took place to expand a countries wealth and power. They then used this new found wealth and power to enforce there will onto the indigenous inhabitants of this newly found country. The colonialists would use their superior power to force the local inhabitants into a labour force, some may call this exploitation and in many cases it was but along with all this exploitation and violence was a new found infrastructure government system.
It made it more apparent that heavy industries, factories and coal mining were becoming more and more important. As stated above the railroads made the trade of goods, coal and steel easier which lead to the growth of steel production as well as the growth of large corporations in the oil, sugar and meat industries. With the arrival of new machine driven factories, the need for skilled workers was dramatically reduce, creating more opportunities for unskilled workers. These laborors were hired to clear lands, build and repair tracks and build the trains needed to supply the new demands. With the promise of learning a trade and becoming more wealthy a new class of people was appearing in the cities, the middle class.
It is also known as industrial agriculture as well and factory farming (intensive livestock production). The change in agriculture came in the late 1800’s when scientific discoveries and technology advanced. With mass production in the Industrial Revolution came nitrogen and phosphorus. These two new products were used to enhance plant growth. The use of synthetic fertilizers made plants grow and a faster pace.
