Agriculture ETFs

The agriculture sector ETFs. The agriculture sector covers grains, livestock, softs or biofuels. The success of this sector is driven by rising demand for food, feed and fuel. Due to the rising birth-rate and growing food consumption the sector is rising fast. There are many companies operating in the agriculture: farmers, manufacturers, processors or distributors. The agriculture ETFs may be used to diversify a portfolio or hedge the investment risk. Those ETFs can be divided into two groups, one focuses on a broad basket of agriculture commodities and the other on a specific commodity e.g. corn, coffee, wool, rice or sugar. Investing in the agriculture sector may be beneficial but the sector is sometimes characterized with extensive instability so it is recommended for investors with at least medium risk tolerance.
