Medieval Innovations: The Three Crop Rotation System

You see, at the same time as all this, a new
crop system came in, the idea of using three fields, the three-crop rotation system it’s
called. One field is fallow, so the animals can graze
on it and drop manure on it. One field is sown in the autumn with cereals, like oats,
for example, to feed the horses, and one field is sown in the spring with legumes – peas,
beans. Carbohydrates, vegetable protein. When you have enough food to sell the surplus for
cash, people went into business, they opened taverns, they even played games.
