Higher farmgate prices help farmers to replace old tractors

UK tractor registrations for the first five months of 2008 totalled 7471, 14% higher than for the same period in 2007, suggesting farmers across the UK are continuing to replace ageing tractors as farm incomes rise off the back of higher farmgate prices.

During May this year the Agricultural Engineers Association recorded 1893 tractor sales, up 24% on the same month last year. The AEA defines agricultural tractors as those over 50hp.
