This chapter discusses an assessment of open and enclosed farmers through a comparison of how rapidly they adopted the package of improvements that helped raise productivity during the early modern period. One of the strongest arguments that landlords had for their agricultural revolutions was that it was able to raise farm productivity. The discussion in this chapter focuses on the south midlands.
