This book is a unique source of up-to-date estimates of support to agriculture. Separate chapters describe and evaluate agricultural policy developments in each OECD member, including important developments such as the single payment scheme in EU countries and the introduction of the Canadian Agricultural Income Stabilisation programme. A special chapter examines the implications of the enlarged EU on agricultural production, trade, income, Common Agricultural Policy implementation, and support levels. This edition also includes a special section on agricultural support in four non-OECD EU countries: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Slovenia. The statistical graphs and tables in this book feature StatLinks, URLs to spreadsheets providing the underlying data.

Enlargement of the European Union

On 1 May 2004, ten new member states (NMS) joined the European Union (EU), thereby increasing the size and diversity of the EU agricultural sector. The agricultural sectors of these new countries are very diverse. Poland has by far the largest agricultural sector in terms of land, employment and output. The implementation of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) in the NMS is likely to have a significant impact on their agricultural sectors. This chapter provides quantitative and qualitative information on changes in the size and characteristics of EU agriculture resulting from enlargement, on market developments, on CAP implementation, and on resulting support levels.
