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.

Canada has significantly reduced its agricultural support since the late 1980s. Producer support as a share of gross farm receipts (%PSE) was halved between 1986-88 and 2000‑02, in large part because market price support (MPS) to the grains industry was discontinued in 1995. The decline in the level of support since then has been more gradual because the dairy, poultry, and egg sectors continue to be under supply management. Given the importance of business risk management programmes, payment levels vary annually. Lower levels of disaster payments in recent years and a shift of budgetary expenditures towards general service support to the sector have resulted in lower farm income support.
