Abstract: The present study was carried out in the Nalbari district of Assam to analyze area, production and productivity of rice. The Nalbari district was selected purposively for the study as the district is a predominantly rice growing district and also from the points of convenience and acquaintance of the researcher. A Multistage Stratified Random Sampling technique was used to select the ultimate sample units i.e., the rice growing farmers from six selected villages of two development blocks, viz, Tihu and Borigog-Banbhag. In total 120 rice growers were selected randomly for the study. Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) was calculated for area, production and productivity for summer, winter and autumn rice. The area, production and productivity in the state increased marginally during the last decade. Farm wise distribution of land indicated availability of more numbers of small farmers as compared to marginal, medium and large farmers. Also among the autumn, winter and summer rice, the summer rice indicated positive Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) in area, production and productivity against autumn and winter rice which had negative Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) during (2004-15).
