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.

Trade liberalisation and domestic policy reforms in the 1990s led to a considerable reduction in the most production and trade distorting support, such as that based on output (including the MPS) and unconstrained use of variable inputs. Support to producers (PSE) accounted for 8% of gross farm receipts in 2016-18. The majority of transfers to producers were in the form of market price support (MPS), and support based on fixed capital formation and variable inputs. Most MPS goes to sugar as it represented 54% of total MPS.
