This chapter examines the Uruguay Round Agreement on Agriculture (AoA). It begins by considering the reasons for the de facto non-application of GATT to agricultural products and non-trade concerns in agricultural trade. It then provides an overview of the AoA, including its product coverage, substantive provisions, and relationship to other WTO agreements. This is followed by discussions of the AoA's provisions on market access, domestic support, and export competition; reviews and remedies; special treatment of developing countries; and changing interests in agriculture and the Doha-Round negotiations.
