History Edit

During the late fourteenth century, the time of the Ming Dynasty, the Hongwu Emperor began a new policy of distributing vast amounts of land to local farmers. A product of a rural upbringing, the Hongwu Emperor favored farmers, and parsed the land, giving it to young boys who had reached manhood. To prevent the seizure of this land by corrupt landlords, he established non-transferable land titles and did away with taxation. The response was overwhelmingly positive. In 1393, the amount of land being cultivated rose drastically, at speeds never equaled by a later dynasty.
Realizing that water conservancy would play a crucial part in the success of Chinese agriculture, the Hongwu Emperor focused on irrigation. He dispatched student from the Kuo-tzu-chien, or Imperial College, to develop massive irrigation systems and develop more than 40,000 ponds and dikes. Because of his decisive actions China experienced an agricultural revolution during the latter half of the fourteenth century.
