OECD Countries

image of Agricultural Policy Monitoring and Evaluation 2014

This edition of Agricultural Policy Monitoring and Evaluation covers OECD member countries and is a unique source of up-to-date estimates of support to agriculture in the OECD area. It is complemented by country profiles on agricultural policy developments in OECD countries.

This book finds that while overall producer support in the OECD area continues to slowly decline, differences in support levels across OECD countries remains large. A number of new country-level frameworks for agricultural policies will become operational in 2014, and multilateral trade negotiations may have future bearing on agricultural trade. In the longer term, an increased focus on innovation will be needed to improve productivity and sustainability.

Executive summary

In 2013, support to producers across the OECD area amounted to USD 258 billion or EUR 194 billion as measured by the Producer Support Estimate (PSE). This is equivalent to 18% of gross farm receipts in OECD countries, down slightly from about 19% in 2012. This is about half the level observed since OECD first began measuring support in the mid‑1980s, when the PSE as a percentage of gross farm receipts was 37%.
