Abstract
Agriculture in Assam is popularly known as rice culture, because it is dominated by rice as the most important cereal crop in terms of area, production and productivity. Resource use efficiency means how efficiently the farmer can use his resource in production process.  Inefficiency in rice cultivation in the state of Assam is a known phenomenon, which might be due to differences in quantum of resource use, the difference in their mode of application, structural and organizational weakness in the farm. Therefore, it is important to captures cost and returns and efficiency of different inputs use in rice cultivation. For these purpose a Cobb-Douglas production function and MVP/MFC method has been calculated. The result indicates that in rice production inputs are over-utilized meaning that inputs are excessively used hence decreasing quantity of the inputs use will increase output and profit level.

Key words: Rice cultivation, Resource use, Cost and return, Efficiency, Inputs, Output
