NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Investors interested in direct access to individual agricultural commodities were just given several more choices this week with the Teucrium Soybean Fund (SOYB), the Teucrium Wheat Fund (WEAT) and the Teucrium Sugar Fund (CANE). Teucrium Trading first entered the arena a little over a year ago with the Teucrium Corn Fund (CORN) which has attracted over $100 million in assets.Similar to CORN, the new funds are futures-based which makes them susceptible to the vagaries of the futures curve, meaning that as futures expire they can sometimes be replaced with futures that cost more than the ones expiring. This is referred to as contango and can be a drag on returns.
