The show, which is a key exhibition for livestock, agriculture, food and machinery, hosted 20,000 attendees, 380 local and international exhibitors.

According to statistics, nearly seven per cent of Algeria’s growth is due to agriculture. The sector employs 12 per cent of the workforce in the nation, and enjoys an annual growth rate of 9 per cent.

Due to a fast growing population, the demand for food is also rising and the Algerian government is working to modernise the sector through mechanisation, to reap maximum benefits.

The most popular products were the JX75T tractor, the JX95 model and the range-topping Farmall 100 JX, Maxxum 125 and Maxxum 140 tractors. The Case IH SB541 was another favourite, which delivers heavy-duty baling performance in all crops and is well suited for small farmers in Algeria

Salim Melouk, owner of Rouiba Matériel Agricole, said, “The agriculture sector is of strategic importance in our country. The demand for high-quality, productive tractors and other agricultural equipment has grown very strong as a result of the sector’s evolution. With Case IH, we are ready to keep pace with the market’s growth and to take advantage of any new opportunity.”

Looking at the trends across the segment, the company has shortlisted some models for the different types of farmers. Case IH JXT and JX Series are compact tractors, ideal for soil preparation, operating implements or pulling trailers, and transport. The JXT Series is the preferred choice for smallholder farmers and growers who need all-purpose tractors.

The Case IH JX Series has five models and fits the needs of small and mid-size farmers. It is highly fuel efficient, making it a sturdy choice for rough conditions. The Case IH articulated tractor is meant for small and mid-size farming, and non-farming businesses.
