					 The Late Agricultural
Revolution, the Industrial
Revolution, and Beyond
         1700 to 2000
 1700s – 1800s animal
powered farming is the
        norm.
Over time
tools that
had been
human
powered
were
modified
for use
with
animal
power.
  Animal power and simple machinery
   were used for preparing the fields,
planting and harvesting. Farming is still
  very labor intensive. (requires many
                 people)
Over time the machinery became more
complex, but was still animal powered.
        (fewer people required)
   Horse Powered Thresher - 1881
      Animal powered
 transportation was widely
used in the 1700s and 1800s.
                  In
Donkey powered Mill many
                  developing
                  nations today
                  animal power is
                  still widely used
                  for farming and
                  transportation.
•The Industrial Revolution began in the late 1700’s in Europe
  Steam Powered Farm Equipment
and gradually spread to North America by the 1800s.
•Machinery was first used in factories and was powered first by
water, then steam, then coal.
•Mass production greatly reduced the need for human labor.
•Eventually, by the early 1900s machinery began replacing
human and animal powered farming methods.
These advances in machinery greatly
reduced the need for human labor in
  Steam
farming. Powered Farm Equipment
Industrial Revolution led to growth of cities
            (late 1800s Chicago)
Motorized forms of transportation
 such as trains, steamships, and
  automobiles in the early 1900s
 further changed our way of life.
Modern farm equipment has continued to
evolve and improve, making farming more
        efficient and productive…
…and less labor intensive.
          The Green Revolution
             Mid 1900s
• The Green
  Revolution spread
  technologies that
  already existed, but
  had not been widely
  used outside of
  industrialized
  nations.
  New Methods to improve crops:
Pesticides, Crop Dusting & Synthetic
              Fertilizers
Improved Crop Varieties
Modern Irrigation
