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.

European Union

The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) started to apply in new member states at the date of accession in May 2004. The implementation of the 2003 CAP reform began in 2004, and the single payment scheme will replace most of the previous area and headage payments as of 2005 to 2007, depending on the country. The hop, tobacco and olive oil sectors were reformed in 2004, all along the same line of incorporating payments into the single payment.
