Trends in potentially environmentally harmful elements of government support to agriculture (producer support estimate) [BIP]

Indicator description

The data provides an indication on the trends in potentially environmentally harmful elements of government support to producers, as measured by the Producer Support Estimates (PSE). Government support refers to payments made to farmers to manage the supply of agricultural commodities, influence their cost, supplement producers’ income and achieve other social and environmental aims. This support to farmers, estimated in terms of the OECD PSE, can be ranked according to its potential impacts on the environment.
