Symbol representing the Corn Belt - Created by DSonla

The Corn Belt is a band of Earths that spans from Earth West 100,000 to around Earth West 460,000.[1][2]

The Corn Belt is known as such because these Earths offer good conditions for farming: regular rainfall, herds of healthy-looking animals, and grassland and prairies littered with familiar looking trees and scrub.[3]

The Long Earth

Lobsang and Joshua passed through the Corn Belt during the Journey in 2030. 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]
