Decoupling Farm Payments: Experience in the U.S., Canada, and Europe

Clayton W. Ogg and Gerrit van Kooten

No 37001, Working Papers from University of Victoria, Resource Economics and Policy

Abstract: Commodity payments in Europe and North America are production based, encouraging greater chemical use and cropping area. Thus, each region undermines the other’s price supports at the expense of the environment. Countries can, however, sever the link between yield levels and payments. Allowing farmers to exit agriculture poses challenges for the US, but perhaps not for Canada and the EU.
