Hemant Sikka, President – Farm Equipment Sector said “We have sold 24276 tractors in the domestic market during March 2024. Government announcement of increased advance estimates of horticulture production and Rabi wheat output higher than last year is expected to bring positive sentiments among farmers. A forecast of a normal South-West monsoon this year is expected to further boost tractor demand in the coming months. In the exports market, we have sold 1748 tractors, a growth of 26 per cent over last year.”
