The Press and Journal (Aberdeen) - - FARMING -

Trac­tor sales in Au­gust were down for the first time in eight months, ac­cord­ing to the Agri­cul­tural En­gi­neers As­so­ci­a­tion.

A to­tal of 878 trac­tors, over 50 horse­power, were reg­is­tered in the UK last month. This is down 7.9% on Au­gust 2016.

“This did fol­low a very healthy level of reg­is­tra­tions in July and may be partly ex­plained by the fact that there were five Mon­days in Au­gust last year but five Mon­days in July this year,” said the AEA.

“In ad­di­tion, it was at this point in 2016 when sig­nif­i­cant in­creases were be­gin­ning to be seen, so we are com­par­ing with higher lev­els one year ago.”
