IDB Agrimonitor

Agricultural Policy Monitoring System in Latin America and the Caribbean

Agrimonitor is a novel database, constantly being updated.

Agrimonitor is the IDB's Producer Support Estimates (PSE) country-level database for Latin American and Caribbean countries. It enables policy makers and policy analysts to track agricultural policies and to assess and measure the composition of the support to agriculture. PSE indicators related to magnitudes and composition of support help to better describe and address the key challenges facing agriculture in the coming decade.

Go ahead, start researching.

You can pick the parameters you would like to search, toggle between table and graph views, as well as print or download the data in excel. The graphs can also be downloaded in PNG, JPEG, PDF or SVG. The Report Center allows you to compare countries and search indicators in the database.

This indicator reflects and includes all the effects of public policies that differentially affect the agricultural sector, from support to the sector (for example, subsidies) to penalties (for example, taxes). In the map you can see the level of the indicator for the latest year available for each country.

Producer Support Estimate (%) - PSE

General Service Support Estimate (%) - GSSE
The General Services Support Estimate (GSSE%) measures the percentage of total support that is provided to agricultural producers (as a group and not individually) through general support (this refers to research, agricultural health services, infrastructure, among others). In the map you can see the level of the indicator for the latest year available for each country.
