Tractor and combine sales declined in April for the second month in a row, according to the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM).

U.S. total farm tractor sales fell 22.3 percent in April compared to 2021, while combine sales for the month declined 5.6 percent. Total farm tractor sales are now down 13.7 percent year-to-date, while combines are down 14.5 percent.

Curt Blades of AEM says, “Supply chain remains the number one difficulty our member manufacturers are facing,” adding, “At the same time, we’re comparing to record numbers from 2021, and while these numbers may look disappointing, they remain above the 5-year average.”
