Monsanto (NYSE:MON), Agrium (NYSE:AGU), Potash (NYSE:POT): Mon's genetically-modified, high-yield seeds could hold the key to ending the food crisis; "We are not going to grow our way out of this without Monsanto," said Cramer and added AGU and POT will continue to provide needed fertilizer; "There is no hope otherwise," said Cramer, "The granaries are empty."

Owen-Illinois (NYSE:OI), Eastman Chemical (NYSE:EMN): Although EMN is buying back stock, The Street thinks of it as "just a dumb commodity play," although "it's done a lot of great things." Cramer prefers OI because of glass recycling. He would buy EMN on a pullback.
