Here we avail of one part of the wealth of statistical data collected by Young-that on grain yields- to provide a comparative perspective on agricultural technique and progress in these countries around 1770 to 1850. We show that, ironically, Young's carefully assembled data do not always support some of his best-remembered generalizations.||Funding Details:||Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Cambridge University Press on behalf of the Economic History Association||Journal:||The Journal of Economic History||Volume:||48||Issue:||1||Start page:||93||End page:||116||Copyright (published version):||Copyright 1998 The Economic History Association||Subject LCSH:||Agriculture--History
