The company’s tractor sales during the quarter were weak. These stood at 59,883 units in the domestic market.

“The tractor market remained subdued with a degrowth of 1.5 percent in the current quarter on account of lower Kharif output and a lower Rabi sowing than last year which impacted the income and the sentiments of the farming community,” a statement said.

“Going ahead, Rabi crop output will play an important role in how the market shapes up,” it added.
