Question about English (UK)

What does "Nor were potatoes the only major produce of Irish agriculture at the time" mean?

Nor were potatoes the only major produce of Irish agriculture at the time; they were just the only produce which the Irish – 75 percent of whom were feudal tenants of mostly tyrannical British landlords, fanatical preachers of ‘free trade’ – were allowed to eat or to feed to their livestock! As the historian Arthur Young wrote, the Irish tenant farmers were, like so many others, effectively slaves.
