Tractor has alternator with a regulator. From past experience, the most likey failure is the voltage regulator, but They can be removed for testing by an alternator repair shop, or on the tractor , using a voltmeter test, Test battery voltage before starting and with engine running, An increase of around two volts, shows the charging system is working, and problem may be battery or wiring.
