Sales fell 11 percent for the quarter and 8 percent for nine months due largely to lower shipment volumes, and the previously announced sales of John Deere Landscapes and John Deere Water. Additionally, year-to-date sales were lower due to the unfavorable effects of currency translation. These factors were partially offset by price realization in both the quarter and nine months.

Operating profit was $941 million for the quarter and $2.967 billion year to date, compared with $1.336 billion and $3.684 billion, respectively, last year. Lower results for the quarter were driven primarily by the impact of lower shipment volumes, higher production costs largely related to engine-emission requirements, and the unfavorable effects of foreign-currency exchange.

The year-to-date decrease was mainly due to lower shipment volumes, unfavorable currency exchange, higher production costs, and a less favorable product mix. Declines for both periods were partially offset by price realization.
