Information about competitive wage and compensation packages is important to attracting and maintaining a productive workforce. A 1986 survey of compensation practices of Ohio Agribusiness firms revealed that bonuses and profit-sharing plans play a more important role in determining pay level than they did in 1982. Larger firms, measured by gross annual sales, still pay more than smaller firms; but trends by geographic location are not as distinct as they were in 1982. Non-managerial agribusiness employees still earn less than their metropolitan counterparts, but the gap is decreasing.
