Though the arrival of SouthWest monsoon got delayed due to cyclonic disturbances, it has smartly progressed in the last week of June and has now covered the entire country, bringing huge relief to the farmers and aiding in Kharif sowing. As on date, aggregate sowing acreage of Kharif crops is ahead of last year's acreage and is progressing at a fast pace. In addition, record rabi crops, Government support with increase in MSP for all Kharif crops and improving terms of trade for farmers are positive factors that are expected to support tractor demand going forward. In the export market, we have sold 1,114 tractors.”
