Total compensation-which includes base salary, benefits, and bonus-for a sample of 177 retail agribusiness managers in Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio is analyzed. Standard categorical analysis and regression techniques are used to explain variation in managerial compensation. Firm sales volume, profitability, number of branch facilities, and managerial experience are important determinants of total compensation. Several issues are identified which merit further research.
