This chapter discusses the importance of pastures, arable rotation, industrial and cash crops, game reserves, warrens, and woodlands to farmers's survival after 1879. The first solution chosen by farmers for survival after 1879 was to pasture. Renewed attention was given to the more efficient use of natural and artificial fertilizers. Cattle yards were covered in order to preserve the nutrients in natural manures. There was also a revival of interest in industrial crops such as tobacco, flax, and hemp. Rabbits returned to occupy a place in the countryside.
