Enclosure and the Yeoman

Robert C. Allen

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses a reassessment of the role of peasant agriculture in England, with most of the focus on output per worker, crop yield, and the total factor productivity as the main indicators of performance. The discussion also takes into account the changes made in the farming method. One of the contributions to agrarian thought that was made during the eighteenth century was the theory of the ‘capital-intensive farmer’ that is also discussed in this chapter.

Keywords:   reassessment, peasant agriculture, role, England, output per worker, crop yield, total factor productivity, indicators of performance, farming method, changes
