Let’s see how things have shaped up prior to this announcement. Key Factors to Consider
Increased spending on agricultural equipment due to pick-up in farm income owing to improved agricultural commodity prices as well as investments in products with premium technologies and smart farming solutions will likely reflect on second-quarter’s revenue numbers. Replacement demand for old equipment is also likely to have aided its top-line performance in the quarter.

However, supply chain-related challenges and higher engineering expenses might have affected AGCO’s quarterly performance.
