Where / how to buy corn

Hey we know about how to buy precious metals by holding the physical, but how is the best way to invest in corn?

Futures

That is the best way to participate in Corn - December Futures would be what I would buy (I have one contract now in fact)

I agree December futures, but

I agree December futures, but if you do not have a futures account I would think Teucrium Corn Fund(CORN) would be the best alternative play on corn.

Futures account

You need cash to play - probably $10-20k minimum, in order to be able to weather down turns. If you want to trade silver you need double. You have to hold a margin amount, and if you are down that reduces your position and if you cannot maintain the margin you must sell. The ETF you can buy like a normal stock I believe.
