UK registrations of agricultural tractors (over 50hp) bounced back in November and were 29% higher than in the same month last year, at 769 units, according to the Agricultural Engineers Association. In fact, it was the highest November figure since 2007.

The latest registrations take the total for the year past last year’s annual figure, with one month left to go. Although December is typically a quiet month for registrations, it is clear there will be a significant uplift in the full year figure; for the year to date, registrations are up 6% on the same period last year.
