The index constituents are: TGE NGM Soybean (42.10%); Euronext Milling Wheat (16.85%); Euronext Feed Wheat (11.61%); Euronext Corn (8.99%) and Euronext Rapeseed (20.45%). The Index is rebalanced monthly and the liquidity weights are readjusted annually - International contract universe (57.90%in EU; 42.10%in Japan) ie the index constituents are non-US-centric
