The survey was conducted to rice farmers in rice field areas in 25 points of research location from 8 rivers those are the main sources of the irrigation system in Yogyakarta Special Province area. Data analyzing used stochastic frontier production function by inserting inefficiency effect model to identify determining factors of rice production as well as influential factors of rice farm production efficiency. The result showed that the land and total pesticide had positive influent toward rice production. Also, the farmer’s experience and the availability of credit access can increase the technical efficiency of rice farm production.
