New tractor registration figures in March have made a small recovery from the start of the year, but are still lagging on the first quarter last year, according to new figures from the Farm Tractor & Machinery Trade Association (FTMTA).

The figures show that 244 new tractors were registered in March. Although only up five units on the same month last year, this marked the first month in 2022 where registration figures surpassed 2021 figures.
