How did England change from an Agricultural country to an Industrial one?( 17th century to 19th century)

Agriculture was the main source of food for England before the industrial revolution. However, after the 15th century, the population began to increase rapidly. In order to meet the needs of the growing population, the food production system needed to change. Agrarian reforms such as the Enclosure Movement or the Norfolk Crop Rotation were in place before the industrial revolution. These changes involved separating land and developing different sections for different crops. This resulted in a decrease in the amount used for agriculture and a reduction of irrigation water. During the Industrial Revolution, power-driven machines replaced manual labor, which was particularly difficult during the agrarian age.
