The attempt was made in the study to examine the economics of cultivation of Swarna sub1 rice in Chandauli district of Uttar Pradesh. 60 farmers were surveyed on the basis of those who cultivated swarna sub1. Efficiency of resources in swarna sub1 and swarna cultivation was examined through Cobb-Douglas production function and MVP analysis. It was found that there was no multicollinearity between any pair of explanatory variables in both varieties. The coefficient of multiple determinations (R2) was found to be 0.69 and 0.63 for swarna sub1 and swarna, respectively. In case of swarna sub1 variety fertilizer and machine labour and in case of swarna seed, fertilizer, plant protection chemical, hired labour and machine labour were found to be statistically significant that these inputs are not optimally utilized by the farmers. There is need to disseminate modern technology employing extension services of government programmes and to strengthen farmer’s knowledge through better extension services and training so that they can apply available agricultural resources more efficiently in stress prone areas.
