TRACTOR SALES BOUNCE BACK
Best November since 2007
The AEA have announced that as anticipated, UK registrations of agricultural tractors (over 50hp) bounced back in November and were 29% higher than in the same month last year, at 769 units.
This means that year to date registrations total 10,673 units, which is a +5.8% change compared with January-November 2016.
Stephen Howarth, Agricultural Economist at the AEA said, "This was the highest November figure since 2007.
"The latest registrations take the total for the year past last year’s annual figure, with one month left to go. Although December is typically a quiet month for registrations, it is clear there will be a significant uplift in the full year figure."
