What changes in agriculture helped farmers to produce more?



Answer to be written in the exam:

Two main changes in agriculture that helped farmers to produce more were:

  • The use of iron ploughs instead of wooden ones. Iron ploughs were stronger and sharper, and could dig deeper and turn the soil better. This improved the fertility and drainage of the soil, and allowed farmers to cultivate more land. 

  • The practice of transplanting paddy instead of sowing seeds directly. Transplanting paddy involved moving young rice plants from a nursery to a flooded field. This ensured that more plants survived, grew faster, and produced more grains.
