Month :               1,446 Units         +7.3% change (compared with July 2018)

Year to Date:      7,643 Units        -3.0% change (compared with January-July 2018)

The month-on-month volatility of UK agricultural tractor registrations continued in July according to the latest data from the AEA (Agricultural Engineers Association).

The number of machines (over 50hp) registered during the month was 7% up on July 2018, at 1,446 units. This rise followed two months of significant declines.

The total for the year to date remains 3% down on the first seven months last year, with 7,643 tractors registered.

Steve Howarth of the AEA commented that some volatility was to be expected this year, given the ongoing influence of Brexit on the market.
