The need to maintain an efficient cycle of agricultural production is propelling the demand for tools and equipment, thus ensuring healthy growth of the agricultural equipment market.
To ensure the agricultural activities remain unhinged, several governments across the world are offering support to farmers in terms of subsidies on the costs of agricultural equipment. On these lines, the Indian government launched a program named Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana to support farmers in purchasing agricultural equipment to improve their productivity and efficiency.
Likewise, government authorities and regulatory bodies in North America and Europe are launching initiatives to educate farmers about the benefits of using advanced technologies in farming. Market players are also introducing loan policies, credit financing, and are investing in educating the consumers about the benefits of contract farming. Such initiatives are propelling the demand for agricultural equipment, especially tractors.
