I used to have this issue with land rovers.

I stripped them down and resealed them with pretty good success.

Take the glass off and dry the condensation capsules. Put them in a hot oven for a few minutes.

If the tractor is "un-cabbed" it is likely that it will be more than condensation in that water collects on the face of the binnacle against the bezel at the bottom of it then "seeps" through enough to defeat the silica gel discs. Even though there are a fair few of them their capacity is limited & they react but slowly.
Don't go out in the rain or put some cling film over the binnacle face if you do. I ran some melted paraffin wax along the outside of the glass adjacent to the bottom seal on my 4/65. When it cooled I carefully wiped off the surplus which seems to have worked.
