Land Use

Only a small amount of land is needed to provide all of the grains, fruits, and vegetables that humans require for food (77m Acres).

Almost twice as much land is used to provide feed for livestock (127m Acres).

And about 8.5 times as much land is used for livestock (654m Acres).

Totaling the amount of land used for animal feed and the land used for grazing livestock is more than 10 times the amount of land that is needed to feed everyone with fresh grains, fruits, and vegetables.
