Commenting on the performance, Hemant Sikka, President - Farm Equipment Sector, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said, “We have sold 21,640 tractors in the domestic market during December 2022, a growth of 30% over last year. Rabi crop sowing has progressed very well and is higher than last year's acreage and also higher than the average of the last 5 years. Wheat and oil seeds are expected to be bumper harvest. On the back of strong Rabi sowing, good Kharif procurement, and likely exports of wheat, the sentiment continues to remain upbeat in the farming sector, leading to strong demand for tractors and farm implements. In the exports market, we have sold 1,603 tractors, a growth of 1% over last year.”
On Monday at 1:08 pm IST, the shares of Mahindra and Mahindra Limited were at Rs 1,263.25 up by 1.12 per cent.
