For England the set that probably answers your questions is titled
The Agrarian History of England and Wales.
Cambridge University Press is the publisher.
It's an expensive multi volumed set. Volume 3 covers 1348-1500 in 1000 
1. Introduction: land and people; 2. The occupation of the land; 3. 
Farming practice and techniques; 4. Marketing the produce of the 
countryside, 1200–1500; 5. Prices and Wages, 1350–1500; 6. Landlords; 7. 
Tenant farming and tenant farmers; 8. Peasant rebellion and peasant 
discontents; 9. Rural building in England and Wales; Select 
bibliography; Index.
You'll just have to hope that a university or college in your area has 
the set.
For information on grains in general look under under agriculture, not 
breads. You'll have better
luck finding what you want.
