Our World’s Farming Situation

Believe it or not, but just about 2.7% of planet Earth is actually farmable. This is taking into consideration of the soil, if there is rocks, and overall land that is able to be grown on, or turned into agriculture.

This is quite an interesting fact, as by 2050, we will be responsible for feeding over 9 billion mouths. This means that we will have to figure out how to grow so many crops on that mere 2% if land. Think about it, if we have so many people in this world, it’s going to be tricky to do this incredible feat.

Erosion is also a big threat to farmers, and because many trees are getting cut down by riversides, it’ll become an even greater issue. What do you think about this dilemma? What are some ways that we can stop problems like this from arising in the future?
