New agricultural tractors registration figures released
The Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA) has released its monthly agricultural tractor registration figures for March.
The AEA report shows that UK registrations of agricultural tractors (over 50hp) followed the typical seasonal pattern, showing a large month-on-month increase in March, which is normally the peak month for registrations.
Although not quite reaching the same level as last year, at 1763 machines the total for March 2020 was only 4% lower.
This is despite the potential for some deliveries to have been delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak, although reports suggest this has not been widespread so far.
The total for the first three months of the year was 8% down on the opening quarter of 2019, with 2,815 units registered.
Month : 1,763 Units -4.2% change (compared with March 2019)
Year to Date: 2,815 Units -7.7% change (compared with January-March 2019)
