Month :                              1,019 Units         +7.0% change (compared with July 2020)

Year to Date:                      7,864 Units         +22.6% change (compared with January-July 2020)         

UK registrations of agricultural tractors (over 50hp) were once again higher than a year before in July.

At 1,019 machines, the monthly figure was 7% higher than in July 2020 but was below average for the time of year.

Given the extremely strong figure for June, this may just be a case of monthly fluctuations, although supply chain challenges linked to Covid-19 have affected the sector, as with most of manufacturing. 

The total number of tractors registered during the year to date reached 7,864 machines, 23% higher than by the same point last year and 7% above the 5-year average for January to July.
