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.

New Zealand

Since its reform of agricultural policies in the mid-1980s, production and trade distorting policies have almost disappeared in New Zealand, and the level of support to farmers has been the lowest among OECD countries, accounting for less than 1% of farm receipts. Practically all prices are aligned with world market prices. Exceptions are fresh poultry and table eggs (as well as some bee products) which cannot be imported to New Zealand due to the absence of Import Health Standards (required for risk products to be allowed for imports) for these products. Some support for on-farm services mainly related to animal health, and for disaster relief, provide additional farm support to a small extent.
