Enabling the Business of Agriculture

Registering machinery

The registering machinery indicator measures regulatory processes that impact the use of agricultural machinery by domestic farmers. Some of the biggest increases in agricultural productivity during the past few decades have been achieved due to the introduction of agricultural machines. The indicator measures the time and cost of tractor registration, and focuses on agricultural tractors as a proxy for the overall farm mechanization environment.
