Lindsay Cor. CEO Rick Parod stated, "Irrigation sales and profits have experienced year over year increases driven by positive farmer sentiment, farm incomes and commodity prices affected by the dry weather. These same positive factors have continued into the early months of fiscal 2013. We expect sales growth and profit improvement in the infrastructure business in 2013. Overall the long term fundamentals of the business remain very positive, as growth drivers of population growth, expanded food production and efficient and environmentally friendly water use remain imperative.”
