The company also reported that global backlog has increased 17.5 percent since the end of fiscal 2020—a record rise.

The earnings report also highlighted two acquisitions in the irrigation segment during the second quarter: Prospera Technologies, Ltd. and PivoTrac.

The company revised its full-year net sales growth guidance upward to 16 to 19 percent. The previous outlook anticipated a 9 to 14 percent increase.

In the irrigation segment, the full-year expectation is that sales will increase 45 to 50 percent.
