2018 Custom Farmwork Rates Report

Survey Details

Survey results of rates charged in 2018 by 200 Ontario custom farmwork operators are summarized on a provincial basis and also by 6 smaller regional areas. Where available the provincial average 2015 rates are also listed. The 2015 survey is the previous survey to the 2018 survey.

Average rates

An average rate is given when there are at least 3 reports. The greater the number of reports, the greater the summary reflects the market rates.

What are percentiles and how can you use them?

Percentiles have been used to help show the range of the rates that were charged. For example, in the Provincial Summary, the 15th percentile for corn combining with grain buggy is $43/acre and the 85th percentile is $54/acre. This means that 15% of those surveyed charged $43/acre or less and 15% charged more than $54. Seventy percent (85th –15th percentile) of all those reporting charged between $43 and $54/acre. The average rate charged was $48/acre.
