    So far the only things that I found were a commodity ETF(dbc) and commodity mutual funds but they have a bunch of other stuff like gold, oil,etc
    is there companies who will benefit a lot from an ag boom?
     
  2. Plant some corn husks in your backyard?
     
  3. are u talking about agriculture or silver?

    agriculture
     

  5. there is DBA -- it tracks wheat, corn, soy, and i think sugar or something like that. 25% of each as a future tracker, but you lose to contango losses the way the ETF is structured.

    since the ethanol subsidy is what has driven the softs, you might as well buy oil.
