Economic Growth

During the immigration period, the 3-field agricultural (crop rotation) system was used (summer and winter cultivation, followed by a fallow period). From these three fields each of the 150 settler families received a total of 13 acres of agricultural land, 6 acres of meadow land and half an acre of land for the house. Up until 1853 the land, house and yard was only allowed to be inherited by a single descendant. With the Ground Release Act of 1853, division of the estate was permitted so that now the land could be divided equally between all the children. The more children, the smaller the inheritance. Above all, it was hardly worth erecting boundaries on the area of arable land. Already by 1828, besides the 150 farming families, there were 83 families living in Neupanat who owned no field. These were the so-called cotters and day labourers.

Within the Neupanat boundaries, the villagers owned 3205 acres of arable land, 160 acres of substitute gardens, 160 acres of vineyards and 117 acres of tended pasture. Often, fields were acquired from neighbouring villages (especially those with Romanian inhabitants). For example, vineyards were bought mainly from the neighbouring village of Wilagosch-Hellburg. With a general move towards internal migration, a whole row of new villages sprung up and in 1843 thirty Neupanat families moved to Baumgarten (Fakert) and others came to Zipar, Sentlein and Neu-Zimand.

With the growing prosperity there was also a steady increase in the population and number of houses registered. There were in:

Naturally, the number of inhabitants also rose:

During the following decades the reverse picture is shown. There were still in:
