    • The $891M PowerShares DB Agriculture Fund (NYSEARCA:DBA) has received $162M of net inflows this year in what could end up being the fund's first full year of net inflows since 2009, according to Invesco.
    • Helping to spark the interest are tentative rallies in grain prices (though these have stumbled badly in the past few days). Among the investors this year is the Harvard endowment.
    • "One thing that we’ve done correctly over the past five years or so is to be absent from the commodities market," says one wealth manager whose firm has now built a sizable position in DBA to protect against what it thinks might be a rise in inflation.

    • El Nino is arriving ahead of schedule, writes Kevin Ferry, noting the heavy rain and mudslides north of Los Angeles - reports most had not expected to see until early next year.
    • Scientists believe this will be the largest El Nino since 1997/98, with the difference now being there's been no run-up in corn and bean prices ahead of the event.
    • This also has implications for fixed-income, as there's nothing like a series of lock limit-up days in the grains to get the masses chattering about inflation.
    • Out-of-the-money lotto tickets on the grains may be worth a look, concludes Ferry.
