A total of 54 new combines have been registered in Ireland up to the end of July, according to new figures from the FTMTA.

This figure represents the highest year-to-date registrations since 2014, when 61 registrations were recorded.

Meanwhile, this year’s figure is up a sizeable 35% on the same period last year, while the 10-year average sits at 37 new combines registered in the Republic each year. Given that the figures cover the period up to the end of July, it is likely there will be few additional combine registrations to follow.
