Brazil provides a relatively low level of support and protection to agriculture, reflecting its position as a competitive exporter and a relatively open trade policy. While increasing in nominal terms, the level of producer support has been relatively constant at 5% of gross farm receipts since 2000, with producer prices on average only 3% above world prices. ?

Nevertheless, there is a wide range and growing number of agricultural policy measures. Price supports have been used extensively, in principle to offer price stability (minimum guarantee prices are set at low levels) and to provide localised support to smaller "family" farmers. There is also heavy state intervention in the credit system, both creating access to credit and rescheduling debt commitments.
