  • Tractor sales down
  • 44% lower tractors sold than in July 2019
  • Year to date tractor sales is now 6,063 tractors


July 2020 tractor sales were well below those of the same month last year says figures  released by the AEA.

At 868 machines, the total was 44% lower than in July 2019.

“However,” said Stephen Howarth, agricultural economist at the AEA, “the total a year ago was somewhat inflated by pre-registrations ahead of regulatory changes. Compared with the previous 5-year average, July’s total was down by less than in April and May, although more than in June.”

The total for the year to date has now reached 6,063 tractors, 28% down on the same period last year.
