Last week, we reported momentum in the agricultural commodities market. We wrote Why Agricultural Commodities Could Start A New Bull Market In 2017.

In this article, we identify 3 agriculture and potash stock with strong momentum which investors are watching closely in 2017.

There is a lot of speculation in the media that Trump is creating volatility in the agricultural commodities market. While that could be true, it is also clear that market segment is clearly on the rise in 2017. The more important data point is that money managers are actively and aggressively buying softs, suggesting agriculture and potash stocks continue to rise in 2017.

Just out of curiousity, why exclude SQM? It's one of the biggest potash producers on the planet. Plus, it's also a huge producer of lithium which means that if you believe in electric cars and TSLA's battery packs, you almost have to believe in it. But the market generally ignores it's lithium reserves. Is that why?
