In many places turnips and clover were still unknown or ignored.
Turnips are grown principally in the central provinces as an alternative crop to wheat.
Potatoes, hemp, turnips, hops, tobacco and beet are also extensively grown, the latter, in connexion with the sugar industry, showing each year a larger return.
The yellow corn and turnips were too late to come to anything.
Farther south, heavy crops of wheat, turnips and other cereals and green crops are not uncommon, while barley is cultivated about Repton and Gresley, and also in the east of the county, in order to supply the Burton breweries.
