Pointing out that 5 companies producing tractors were included in the ISO (Istanbul Chamber of Industry) 500 list this year, Bayramoğlu added that the demand for tractors was positively affected by the fact that farmers, who have investment plans especially in the coming months, brought their purchases forward due to the expectation of high inflation / low real investment instruments and the attractive rates in subsidised agricultural loan interest rates.
