Summary: This is one of a series of handbooks that have arisen from a surveillance project to evaluate agricultural price and trade interventions in eight Latin American countries for seven commodities for the period 1986 to 1993. The countries included in this surveillance project are Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Paraguay, and Uruguay. The aim of the project is to make transparent the effects of agricultural trade and price policies. To achieve this goal a common methodology was applied to each country to calculate four policy indicators: nominal protection rate (NPR), effective protection rate (EPR), effective rate of assistance (ERA), and producer subsidy equivalent (PSE). This handbook presents and discusses the results and methodology for Colombia on beef, cotton, maize, milk, rice, sorghum, soybeans, and wheat for 1985-1993.
