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.

For the first time, sugar beet growers received a payment to compensate for losses associated with production quota. Input subsidies that in 2002 were about three-quarters lower than in 1999, increased by over one-third in the following two years. The financial support to Agricultural Sales Co-operatives (ASC) and their unions (ASCU) was reduced by over three-quarters. Efforts to converge agricultural policy with that of the European Union were accelerated.
