PowerShares DB Agriculture (NYSEARCA:DBA)

The PowerShares DB Agriculture Fund seeks to track changes, whether positive or negative, in the level of the DBIQ Diversified Agriculture Index Excess Return™ (“DB Agriculture Index” or the “Index”) plus the interest income from the Fund’s holdings of US Treasury securities less the Fund’s expenses. DB Commodity Services LLC serves as the Managing Owner of the Fund. The Fund is designed for investors who want a cost-effective and convenient way to invest in commodity futures. The Index is a rules-based index composed of futures contracts on some of the most liquid and widely traded agricultural commodities. You cannot invest directly in the Index. The fund is rebalanced and reconstituted annually in November.   This Fund is not suitable for all investors due to the speculative nature of an  investment based upon the Fund’s trading which takes place in very volatile markets. Because an investment in futures contracts is volatile, such frequency in the movement in market prices of the underlying futures contracts could cause large losses.

Teucrium Corn (NYSEARCA:CORN)

The Teucrium Corn Fund (NYSE: CORN) provides investors unleveraged direct exposure to corn without the need for a futures account.  The Teucrium Corn Fund was also designed to reduce the effects of backwardation and contango.

The investment objective of the Fund is to have the daily changes in percentage terms of the Shares’ Net Asset Value (“NAV”) reflect the daily changes in percentage terms of a weighted average of the closing settlement prices for three futures contracts for corn (“Corn Futures Contracts”) that are traded on the Chicago Board of Trade (“CBOT”), specifically (1) the second-to-expire CBOT Corn Futures Contract, weighted 35%, (2) the third-to-expire CBOT Corn Futures Contract, weighted 30%, and (3) the CBOT Corn Futures Contract expiring in the December following the expiration month of the third- to-expire contract, weighted 35%, less the Fund’s expenses.

Teucrium Wheat (NYSEARCA:WEAT)

The Teucrium Wheat Fund (NYSE: WEAT) provides investors unleveraged direct exposure to wheat without the need for a futures account. The Teucrium Wheat Fund was also designed to reduce the effects of backwardation and contango.

The investment objective of the Fund is to have the daily changes in percentage terms of the Shares’ Net Asset Value (“NAV”) reflect the daily changes in percentage terms of a weighted average of the closing settlement prices for three futures contracts for wheat (“Wheat Futures Contracts”) that are traded on the Chicago Board of Trade (“CBOT”), specifically: (1) the second-to-expire CBOT Wheat Futures Contract, weighted 35%, (2) the third-to-expire CBOT Wheat Futures Contract, weighted 30%, and (3) the CBOT Wheat Futures Contract expiring in the December following the expiration month of the third-to-expire contract, weighted 35%.

Teucrium Soybean (NYSEARCA:SOYB)

The Teucrium Soybean Fund (NYSE: SOYB) provides investors unleveraged direct exposure to soybeans without the need for a futures account. The Teucrium Soybean Fund was also designed to reduce the effects of backwardation and contango.

The investment objective of the Fund is to have the daily changes in percentage terms of the Shares’ Net Asset Value (“NAV”) reflect the daily changes in percentage terms of a weighted average of the closing settlement prices for three futures contracts for soybeans (“Soybean Futures Contracts”) that are traded on the Chicago Board of Trade (“CBOT”). The three Soybean Futures Contracts will be: (1) second-to-expire CBOT Soybean Futures Contract, weighted 35%, (2) the third-to-expire CBOT Soybean Futures Contract, weighted 30%, and (3) the CBOT Soybean Futures Contract expiring in the November following the expiration month of the third-to-expire contract, weighted 35%, except that CBOT soybean Futures Contracts expiring in August and September will not be part of the Teucrium Soybean Fund’s Benchmark because of the less liquid market for these Futures Contracts.
