Flash Tractors

While nosing through vehicle registration stats on other matters, I tripped over this chart of annual new tractor registrations. Ye gods, the farmers went nuts buying tractors during Labour's time in government. Tractors haven't been rolling out the door that quickly since... Muldoon's Supplementary Minimum Price days in the early 80's. What's up with that? It's not just a strong dollar, is it?
