Quick Reference

The state of the harvest was a matter of annual concern even though bad years rarely resulted in famine. The weather caused considerable fluctuations in yields from year to year, from crop to crop, and from region to region. See W. G. Hoskins, ‘Harvest Fluctuations and English Economic History, 1620–1759’, Agricultural History Review, 16/1 (1968), and C. J. Harrison, ‘Grain Price Analysis and Harvest Qualities, 1465–1634’, Agricultural History Review, 19/2 (1971).
