Abstract: The growth rates of rice for ten districts of Telangana State were studies using the time series data from 1986-87 to 2015-16. For this study whole 30 years data was divided into two periods, each period had fifteen years. The growth pattern was examined by compound growth rate (CGR) and linear growth rate (LGR). CGR fitted on exponential model Yt = β0βt εt and LGR fitted on linear model Yt = β0+β1+∈. The growth pattern in area, production and productivity of rice showed an upward trend at state as well as period-I and period-II. For rice crop area and production of Linear growth rate and compound growth rate were higher during the period II except in productivity was highest in period-I. As a whole state the growth rates of production were higher than the growth rates of area and productivity. Production showed highest growth rate during period-II compare to all periods of area and productivity. However growth rates were positive and significant at probability level 5 per cent and 1 per cent for production and productivity respectively in both periods for area growth rates were showed positive and non-significant in both periods
