- Figures are lower than January 2021
- The AEA reports the slowdown in UK tractor registrations
According to figures released by the AEA, the slowdown in UK tractor registrations which was perceptible in the second half of 2021 continued into the new year.
“Numbers continue to be suppressed by widespread disruptions to global supply chains, which are leading to delays in supplying tractors (and other types of machinery) to customers,” said Stephen Howard an agricultural economist with the AEA.
“At 500 machines, the number of agricultural tractors registered during the month was 14% below the same month last year. That was actually the lowest January figure for more than 20 years, although this is always a relatively quiet time of year for tractor registrations.”
