Agricultural Policy Monitoring and Evaluation 2019

image of Agricultural Policy Monitoring and Evaluation 2019

This annual report monitors and evaluates agricultural policies spanning all 6 continents, including the 36 OECD countries, the 5 non-OECD EU Member States, and 12 emerging economies. It is a unique source of up-to date estimates of support to agriculture using a comprehensive system of measuring and classifying support to agriculture – the Producer and Consumer Support Estimates (PSEs and CSEs), the General Services Support Estimate (GSSE) and related indicators – which provide insight into the increasingly complex nature of agricultural policy and serve as a basis for OECD’s agricultural policy monitoring and evaluation. Comprehensive country chapters and the Statistical Annex containing detailed background tables with indicators of agricultural support are available in electronic form at the publication website.

Despite a series of reforms since the late 1990s, the level of farm support in Turkey, while varying from year to year, has remained around 20% during 2016-18, which is slightly higher than the average for the OECD area. Most distorting forms of support dominate as Market Price Support (MPS) accounted for 72% of the producer support in 2016-18, resulting from domestic price support, tariffs and other import barriers as well as export subsidies for certain products. The level of price distortions has remained higher than the OECD average: domestic prices remain on average 18% above world prices in 2016-18.
