However, exports declined 38 percent to 787 units in the previous month as compared with 1,264 units in January 2019, it said.

“We have sold 22,329 tractors in the domestic market during January with a growth of 7 percent over last year. The tractor demand is likely to see positive momentum, led by the expectations of a good Rabi output and the government’s renewed focus on rural sector through higher allocation as announced in the Union Budget,” M&M Farm Equipment Sector President Rajesh Jejurikar said.
