Research study reports that there is productivity difference between tenants and owner farms beside difference in resources used. A study conducted in Karbi Anglong district of Assam, India found that the resource use in rice cultivation in tenant and owner rice farms was significantly different. The owner farmers were found to be more efficient in resource use than the tenant farmers. These differences can be attributed primarily to differences in economic condition of both the group of farmers. The owners were found to be economically better off with income source beside agriculture than the tenants. For the existing level of rice production, there is still scope for increasing the amount of resource use. Awareness and training on adoption of the recommended package of practices of rice would certainly help both the tenant and owner farmers to increase their production to make them rice secured.
