Case IH, a world leader in the agricultural equipment business, said Turkmenistan has agreed to buy 220 plowing tractors and 100 cotton pickers from Case IH. The total order is valued at $55 million.

"This is the family of tractors that has been hugely successful in Turkmenistan, and we are very honored for the purchases to continue," said Michael Edmondson, regional president of CNH's International Agricultural Equipment Business. "We value our relationship in Turkmenistan and support the development of agriculture here."

Edmondson said he expects the tractors to be shipped before the end of 2006, while the cotton pickers would be delivered "well in time for the cotton picking season next year."
