Jim Rogers: "If you're smart, put your money into anything related to agriculture"

Jim Rogers in UAE - Buy Agriculture and Farmland
Jim Rogers was in the UAE recently, and he recently gave an interview with the newspaper Gulf News.  Once again, Jim Rogers turned to agriculture and farmland investments as his top recommendation.  In his typical fashion, Jim Rogers again noted that agriculture and farmland as an investment is a great value:
"Nobody wants to farm any more. Yet there are more people than even now. Seven billion of us....Fewer and fewer people are producing more and more food for more and more of us. That's only going to get worse over the next 20 or 30 years. So if you're smart, put your money into anything related to agriculture."
Not surprisingly, there have been a number of farmland investment funds opened recently (see yesterday's post on the newest farmland fund launched), as institutional investors pile into the asset class.  There are also agricultural farmland investments open to individuals now.
