INFOGRAPHIC: How much land does it take to feed the UK?
Visua.ly has released a graphic breakdown of the "food footprint" for a single UK denizen, showing how much of what they consume, as well as how much land is needed to provide different categories of sustenance to all 62 million people currently living in the UK.
The infographic is especially pertinent given recent efforts by investment gurus such as Jim Rogers to tout the merits of agricultural stocks, and a shift by China's biggest bank from investment in Australia's mining sector to its pastoral and farming sector.
Rogers predicated during the 2008 Great Financial Crisis that investment banks may soon be trading in their Blackberries for tractors, as agriculture and farming are destined to become flourishing growth sectors.
