Trade Data

Norway: Track-laying tractors data: almost all these tractors are used outside agriculture. Other agricultural tractors data: about 80% of the tractors are used in agriculture. Source: Annual Questionnaire 2008. Starting in 2003 the data refer to estimation relating to the agricultural sector as provided by Statistics Norway, Division for Primary Industry Statistics on the 2010 Annual questionnaire.
