Sale of agricultural machinery

MELFORT, Sask. – Sales of North American agricultural tractors and combines fell in April for the second month in a row.
Curt Blades, senior vice president of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) for industry sectors and product leaders, attributes the decline to supply chain difficulties.
“The supply chain remains the number one difficulty facing our member producers,” Blades said. “At the same time, we’re comparing with the 2021 record figures, and while those figures may look disappointing, they remain above the five-year average.”
In Canada, unit sales in all segments fell again by 19 percent in total agricultural tractor sales, leading to a 49.3 percent decline in 4WD units.
