The state of Meghalaya is blessed with abundant rainfall, fertile soil, diversity in natural resources and having a strong base in traditional knowledge, which have made it favorable for its Agricultural growth but still there is a decline in agricultural output. Land degradation due to loss of fertility and lots of other bio-physical and socio-economic causes paves the way for food insecurity, livelihood and affecting the economy of the state as a whole. The study was carried out in different altitudes of the state to find out the relationship between socio-economic factors with the yield and income of the paddy growing farmers. A multistage purposive and probability proportional to size sampling method was used for drawing a total sample of one hundred twenty from three altitude of the hill. There were twelve independent variables(X1-X12) and two dependent variables (Yield Y1 and Income Y2) were selected for the present study. Appropriate statistical tools used in the study for analysis of the data. The analysis of the result shows that family type (‘t’ value of 2.990**) and Mass media (‘t’ value 4.280**) have recorded a significant impact at p=0.01 level of significance on Yield (Y1). Education (‘t’ value of 2.991**) and land holding (‘t’ value of 2.691**) recorded the significant impact at p=0.01 level of significance on Income (Y2). All those variables are the keys for the enhancement of the yield (R2 0.497) and income (R2 0.585) of the family.
