Abstract

A specific type of traditional, coupled infield-outfield farming, is analysed on the basis of a diary 1829-57 with the aim of understanding functions and effects of the farming system in relation to landscape physiognomy. Transfer of plant nutrients from meadow to infield via livestock not only supplied fertilisers, but had lasting and improving impacts on soil retention capacities for ions and water, thus facilitating cultivation. The role of hearthland as a soil improvement material was important.
