North America

Net sales grew 8.7% in AGCO’s North American region during the first half of 2013 compared to 2012. The expectation of improved crop production and attractive soft commodity prices supported elevated levels of industry demand. Sales were strongest in the professional producer segment, with the most significant increases in high horsepower tractors, implements and combines. Higher sales, a favorable product mix and margin improvement initiatives contributed to growth in income from operations of $47.8 million for the first half of 2013 compared to the same period in 2012.
