5 True/False questions
Colonial city → Cities that arose during the Middle Ages and that actually represent a time of relative stagnation of urban growth. This system fostered a dependent relationship between wealthy landowners and peasants who worked their land, providing very little alternative economic opportunities
Capital-intensive agriculture → Form of agriculture that uses mechanical goods such as machinery, tools, vehicles and facilities to produce large amounts of agricultural goods; a process requiring very little human labor
City Beautiful Movement → Those parts of large urban areas that lose significant portions of their populations as a result of change in industry or migration to suburbs. Because of these changes, the inner city loses its tax base and becomes a center of poverty.
Intensive cultivation → Any kind of agricultural activity that involves effective and efficient use of labor on small plots of land to maximize crop yield
Specialty crops → Cities that arose during the Middle Ages and that actually represent a time of relative stagnation of urban growth. This system fostered a dependent relationship between wealthy landowners and peasants who worked their land, providing very little alternative economic opportunities
