NOVI SAD - The first new tractors to come out of the rebuilt IMT factory in Jarkovac, northeastern Serbia, have been unveiled at the 86th International Agriculture Fair in Novi Sad.

The IMT's 539, 549, 565 and 577 models are on display at this year's fair.

"The IMT models we have presented at the Fair were assembled at the Jarkovac plant. Assembly of two more models - the IMT 565 and the IMT 577 - will begin by the end of the year. A new hybrid assembly line for tractors will start operating in Jarkovac early next year," said Kamal Ahuja, deputy managing director at TAFE, the Indian company that has acquired the Serbian tractor brand.

Besides IMT models, the TAFE Magna tractor series will be assembled at the Jarkovac plant.

The series will be sold in Serbia as well as exported to European markets.

New TAFE models - the 4615, the 6515 and the 8515 - are also on display at the Novi Sad fair.
