No one, like the agricultural business area, is in a position to immediately gain the benefits of a larger Christmas level, as anticipated this year. It's that when the agrarian results are positive, there is an incentive to invest in & # 39; a rebuilding or updating of the equipment. Therefore, industrialists in the sector starting in March trust the bulk of corn and maize production, and there will be recreation in sales.
"We had a complicated 2018, marked by a heavy drought that prevented the ripening and the lack of funding. This published a decay in over 30 percent sales on some items," Lisandro Tron said. , chairman of & # 39; e Association of agricultural machinery manufacturers and Agrocomponentses de Córdoba (Afamac).
Designed for the current year, and then the entries created by the harvest that are considered record, manufacturers' expectations are moderated.
The diagnosis of entrepreneurship diminishes with that made by the Institute of Argentine and Latin American Reality Studies (IRL) of the Mediterranean Foundation, which, with the support of Afamac, has been controlling the sector for years. "There are positive expectations for 2019, based on a possible good harvest and a rating that would make it impossible to sell," reports economists Marcos Cohen Arazi and Fernando Kühn.
Although harvesting has been successful, manufacturers can know that financing is essential to selling sales. More than one is believed to have sold over 85 percent of equipment over the past few years with bank credit.
"The best crop will be sold. The most important thing is that the contribution of money received by the economy is to earn the interest. The producer will not go out and buy without funding", said Guillermo Abratte. director of the Doble TT company, located in Morteros.
For Gustavo del Boca, owner of Establecimientos Metalúrgicos Oncativo, with a good harvest, it is not enough to reactivate the sector. "We need based measures to finance the current prices for businesses to compromise their own event," he said.
From Ieral also indicate the need to be credited to competitive rates. According to the institution, this expects to see the expectations of "moderation".
The slowdown in price updating will be such that financing in the coming months will be accessible. "The loan at a reasonable rate comes back but is slowly checked as inflation. If we have inflation between 25 and 30 percent a year, rates will be charged," said Alberto Gaviglio, president of the Akron company, based in San Francisco.
In 2018, the lower activity was used in & # 39; reflected a local industry. The indicator reached 69 percent, reached less than 77 percent in 2017, and had exhibited the highest level of work since 2011, according to IER.
Although the drop was in important sales, "to work on a loss as it did in 2015," according to Tron, the companies made the effort to keep the staff. The overall employment opportunity indicator in & # 39; The sector, which has been produced by the Irish, returned last year only two points, which have kept the highest values since 2011.
"We had a complicated 2018. That a drop in sales of over 30% on some areas."
"The ripening will help, but the producer will not buy without funding"
"The loan for a learning preparation will return if there is an inflation rate between 25 and 30%."
"We need based measures for the industry, because with the consistency alone it's not enough".
