How Much Soil Is There?

Earth apple with 40% more gone

    When 50% is removed, this is what is left. (12.5% of the original) Of that 12.5%, 40% is severely limited by terrain, fertility or excessive rainfall. It is too rocky, steep, shallow, poor or too wet to support food production.

Cut that 40% portion away.
