The average rate of producer support in OECD countries – the industrialized world – is more than double the rate in emerging and developing nations…“We see many opportunities to reform policies,” said Jonathan Brooks, head of OECD’s agriculture division, during a briefing. Government transfers to agriculture are equal to $2 billion a day. The annual report on agricultural supports looked at 54 countries…Three-fourths of the supports flowed to individual producers and more than half of the money, or nearly 40 percent overall, was provided through policies with the greatest chance of distorting production. They include price supports, payments tied directly to production of a crop or livestock, and payments tied to use of an input such as fertilizer. Even in programs that hinge on environmental constraints, payments typically are made regardless of outcomes. Only one-eighth of total support of agriculture is devoted to agricultural innovation systems, inspection and control systems, and rural infrastructure, said the OECD report. It recommended a gradual but steady dismantling of subsidies that distort markets or constrain environmental improvements, ideally as part of multilateral or regional agreements for reform. Steps such as mandatory “cross-compliance” –requiring environmental achievements as a condition for receiving farm supports – should be implemented where needed…OECD analyst Emily Gray sounded a note of caution about the large U.S. payments of recent years. “Where we say this might become a concern is if these kinds of assistance packages start to discourage producers from adjusting to new market conditions and new climate conditions, and if they discourage the necessary adjustments that are important to improve resiliency in the long term.”” National Latino Farmers & Ranchers Trade Association 1029 Vermont Avenue, NW, Suite 601 Washington, DC 20005 Office: (202) 628-8833 Fax No.: (202) 393-1816 Email: latinofarmers@live.com Twitter: @NLFRTA Website: www.NLFRTA.org -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups 'U.S. National COVID-19 Emergency Response Group' group.
