The reasons for the growth of the Turkish tractor market include high agricultural prices despite the fall in production due to adverse weather conditions, access to favorable credit conditions for financing retail sales, and the launch of numerous new tractor models. In addition, grant supports from Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance in Rural Development (IPARD) also played a key role.
