Agreed, DBA is a great ETF to hold, it gives approximately 25% exposure to Wheat. If you want 100% exposure another alternative is WEAT that trades on the London Stock Exchange, but is in US dollars.

It tracks the DJ-AIG Wheat Sub-Index, average volume is about 70,000 per day, information about it is here:
