Are there any sources which mention the agrarian limitations during the fall of the Roman empire (any weakness created through an agrarian society) or nomadic advantages (in warfare, etc?). I have found sources on Hunnic warfare: their adept horse-riding skills were useful in war, the increasing presence of agri deserti, etc. But all of these sources mention agrarian limitations/nomadic advantages indirectly.

  • What agrarian limitations? Is there any evidence that agrarian limitations existed? What are agrarian limitations? What are "agri deserti"?
