    Re: agrarian vs. agricultural

    agricultural = relating to the practice of farming

    That is good agricultural land.

    agrarian = [adjective] relating to agriculture and its nature.

    At its founding, the United States was an agrarian nation

    Thank you, Anglika!

    It's a little difficult for me to "pick it up" because there is just one word for both of the meanings in my language.
