Commenting on the performance, Rajesh Jejurikar, President - Farm Equipment Sector, Mahindra & Mahindra said, "We have sold 23,539 tractors in the domestic market during May 2019.

We hope that a strong push by the Government on agriculture initiatives coupled with a near normal monsoon forecast by IMD (India Meteorological Department) would boost the tractor demand in the near future. In the exports market, we have sold 1,165 tractors, a growth of 3 percent over May 2018."
