image of Agricultural Policies in OECD Countries 2005

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.

Executive Summary

There has been little change in the level of producer support since the late 1990s for the OECD as a whole. It has fallen from 37% of farm receipts in 1986-88 to 30% in 2002-04, but this level of support was first reached seven years ago in 1995-97. Annual fluctuations in the level of support mainly reflect policy measures limiting the transmission of international trade price developments to domestic markets.
