Commenting on the performance, Hemant Sikka, President – Farm Equipment Sector, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said, “We have sold 39,053 tractors in the domestic market during September 2021. Strong revival in rainfall during September brought cheers to the farming community, with the entire rainfall deficit wiped off by end of September and monsoon achieving normal levels. This is back-to-back normal or above normal monsoon for the third year. Reservoir levels have improved and excess rainfall in September will lead to high moisture content in the soil, leading to strong Rabi sowing. With initial crop production estimates indicating highest ever Kharif Crop, coupled with the upcoming festive season, we are optimistic of a strong demand in the coming months.
In the exports market, we have sold 1,278 tractors with a growth of 25% over last year.”
