Month :                              868 Units           -43.9% change (compared with July 2019)

Year to Date:                     6,063 Units        -28.2% change (compared with January-July 2019)

UK agricultural tractor registrations were once again well below last year's level in July. At 868 machines, the total was 44% lower than in July 2019. However, the total a year ago was somewhat inflated by pre-registrations ahead of regulatory changes. Compared with the previous 5-year average, July's total was down by less than in April and May, although more than in June. The total for the year to date has now reached 6,063 tractors, 28% down on the same period last year.

Note: From the start of 2020, we have revised the methodology for calculating tractor registrations, which has resulted in a small reduction in the number of machines included in the figures. Revised monthly figures for 2019 on the same basis as the 2020 numbers are available on the AEA website (https://aea.uk.com/industry-insight/tractor-statistics/).
