Best ETFs for Agriculture Exposure

Investors looking to agriculture to their portfolio have several ETFs from which to choose.

Gregory Zuckerman writes that investors can choose from exchange traded funds that own agriculture-related companies such as the Market Vectors Agribusiness ETF (MOO) or PowerShares Global Agriculture Portfolio (PAGG).

An alternative is to invest directly in agriculture commodities through ETFs such as the PowerShares DB Agriculture (DBA) ETF which tracks the Deutsche Bank Liquid Commodity Index Diversified Agriculture Excess Return. The rules-based index is composed of futures contracts on some of the most liquid and widely traded agricultural commodities.
