15. Effects of the Agricultural Revolution Correct answers: Greater efficiency and mechanization meant that… much more food could be produced. Fewer workers were needed to… produce the food so it became cheaper. Fewer agricultural jobs caused the rural population to… decline in many areas with migration to the towns. The percentage of the population living and working… in the countryside fell from 80% in 1750 to just 20% in 1900. Better nutrition resulted… in an increased population. A larger workforce enabled… new industries to start up. Photo © 2007 Jupiterimages Corporation Correct answers: Greater efficiency and mechanization meant that… much more food could be produced.
