This table shows the amount of subsidy that was distributed by product category between April 1, 2015 and March 31, 2016, and the weight of the products that were subsidized during this period. Product categories are listed in descending order based on the amount of subsidy; the category that received the highest amount of subsidy is listed first, followed by the category that received the second highest amount of subsidy, and so on. Numbers in the table are preliminary. Values are subject to change.

This chart shows what percentage of the total subsidy transfer between April 1, 2015 and March 31, 2016 was applied to specific product categories.

The chart is based on data in the table above.
