“What are some of the most fertile soils in the world?”

Soil is quite literally one of the bedrocks of human society. And just as Earth’s geography is greatly diverse, so are its soils. Some of the most fertile soils have a high percentage (upwards of 16%) of humus and other nutritious substances. This Chernozem is commonly found in Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and parts of the upper North American Midwest. Because of its recognizable dark color, the word Chernozem comes from the Russian words for black soil (chorny + zemlya).
