Symbol representing the Corn Belt - Created by DSonla

The Corn Belt refers to the band of Earths that starts at Earth West 100,000 and ends around Earth West 460,000.[1][2]

It is called this because those Earths offer good conditions for farming: grassland, prairies littered with familiar looking trees and scrub and dense with herds of healthy-looking animals, rainfalls and trees.[3]

The Long Earth

During Lobsang and Joshua's journey, on the nineteenth day, around Earth West 460,000, Lobsang declared that they had reached the limit of the Corn Belt, the worlds beyond being too warm and the forests too thick to make farming worthwhile.[2]
