The exports also logged a 13 percent growth at 1,040 units, compared with 917 units shipped out in February 2013.

"Tractor demand for the current fiscal till date has been robust due to a favourable monsoon and higher minimum support prices," Mahindra & Mahindra chief executive for Tractor and Farm Mechanisation Rajesh Jejurikar said.

The shortage of labour at farms has given a boost to mechanization, resulting in higher demand for tractors, he said, adding, "We have achieved a cumulative domestic growth of 23 percent till February."
