John Deere Suspends Shipments to Russia

Due to the business challenges, Deere significantly reduced its presence in Russia, including nonrenewal of dealership contracts in November 2022 and the sale of its financial services business in the second quarter of FY 2023. Our U.S. senior management continues to closely monitor all risks to John Deere operations in the region.
