The Agrarian Revolution is when new developments were developed in order for people to farm more effectively. It was one of the main causes for the Industrial Revolution to start in England.

Agrarian = farming.

New technologies or farming techniques include the seed drill and the cotton gin. Eventually farming will be made more effective by the invention of the steam engine.

More food = more people.
