The ag equipment market showed its fair share of ups and down in September. Total combine harvester sales were up a modest 6.6% from August while total tractor sales fell 12.8%.

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) shared data that all agricultural equipment sales in the U.S. were above the five-year average last month, but down in nearly all segments from the same time in 2021. AEM says the market has been turbulent as farmers want to take advantage of efficiency gains that new equipment brings to their operations. But supply chain obstacles continue to impact manufacturers’ delivery capability.

Year to date, AEM reports 4,555 combines have been sold, about 150 more than this same time last year.
