Cramer: Agriculture is the go-to sector, despite Syria

|By:, SA News Editor

The agricultural sector is the "strongest sector in the market right now," Jim Cramer says as he searches for ways to help investors protect their portfolios in the midst of geopolitical turmoil.

Monsanto (MON) will be a winner despite Syria, he says, adding that he expects a turn higher in commodities, especially corn, which will help the group; his favorite in the sector is AGCO.

Cramer says his thesis also is supported by strength from Deere (DE), which is "breaking out."
