OECD Review of Agricultural Policies Brazil: Highlights and Policy Recommendations
Brazil provides relatively little support to its farmers. Producer support, as measured by the PSE, accounted for 3% of the gross value of farm receipts in 2002‐04 ‐ a rate comparable with that of New Zealand (2%) and Australia (4%), and far below the OECD average (30%). The highest support levels are for import‐competing staples (wheat, maize and rice) and cotton, ranging between 6% and 17% for these products.
