By

Out of all the different types of commodity ETFs, there’s no doubt that the energy (mainly oil) and precious metals (mainly gold) get all of the attention. But there are plenty of other commodity ETF opportunities in the investing world as well. One being agriculture ETFs.

Agriculture ETFs can be used to diversify or stabilize a portfolio, hedge risk to certain countries dependent on an agriculture commodity, or even create a new investing opportunity.

And there are two types of agriculture ETFs as well. You can invest in a broad agriculture fund or go for a specific-commodity ETF that targets sugar, coffee, or grains. The choice is yours.
