Agricultural policy models around the world

Home \ Prices & Stats \ News \ 2016 \ August \ Agricultural policy models around the world

Brexit has created the opportunity for the UK to create its own Agricultural Policy.

To date there have been no official announcement on a future UK agricultural policy. However, the latest edition of AHDB’s Horizon series looks at different agricultural support models from specific countries around the world and evaluates their impact on the agricultural industry. The report is not intended to predict in which direction UK Government may choose to go but to outline examples of the alternative models that currently exist.

The report reviews the public instruments that are used to tackle price and income volatility in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. These are all countries that have a lower level of support than the EU. The report also reviews the nature and importance of current support arrangements (under the CAP) and looks at how World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules will constrain the UK government’s options.

The new report and other AHDB publications about the implications of the UK’s decision to leave the EU can be downloaded by clicking here.
