Monsoons have been overall positive with 8 percent higher than LPA, however the spatial distribution has been deficient in key paddy states of eastern India, thus impacting paddy sowing.  We are optimistic that tractor purchases on auspicious days in the festive season will lead to revival in demand, as farmers start preparation for harvesting.We are preparing for strong tractor demand in the festive season.”
