Agricultural policy

Agricultural policy describes the laws, instruments and measures related to the domestic farm sector and trade in agricultural products. Agricultural policies encompass a wide range of issues, including providing sufficient food at reasonable prices for consumers, securing food safety and improving environmental quality. Despite this diversity, policy measures applied in a country within a certain period of time can be brought together and expressed in a set of numbers, called agriculture support indicators, which are comparable across time and between countries.
