This book is a unique source of up-to-date estimates of support to agriculture. Separate chapters describe and evaluate agricultural policies in each OECD country, including such important developments as the introduction of the single-payment scheme in the EU. This edition also includes a special chapter describing the revised method of estimating support to agriculture used for the first time in this report. As always, it includes extensive statistical data on support to agriculture broken down by type of support and commodity, as well as Statlinks, URLs linking to Excel® spreadsheet versions of tables and graphs.

The major policy development in 2007 was the implementation of three new direct payments, including support based on historical planted area, output payments (differentiated according to product quality), and compensation for income loss. This is an important part of the policy reform to re-orient support from individual commodity to commodity groups and to target support to larger farms. With the introduction of these new payments, relevant commodity specific payments based on output were abolished.
