The present study was conducted in Gonda district of Uttar Pradesh due to higher concentration of area and production under paddy cultivation from the selected district. The study was based on the primary data collected through well-structured Survey schedule with the help of personal interview from 100 respondents who selected from five villages of Tarabganj block, in Agricultural Year 2022-23 with aid of proportionate allocation method. The main focus of the study was to find out the resource use efficiency of the paddy cultivation Cobb –Douglas production function was fitted tofound out resource use efficiency and also find out the major constraints in cultivation of paddy crop in study area. For the constraints analysis Garett ranking technique was applied. The major findings of this study were that returns to scale on marginal, small and medium size group of sample farms characterized by decreasing returns to scale. On the other hand, major findings in constraints analysis top fiveproblem faced by the farmers were Higher interest rate with a score of 55.78 (rank I), labour problem (overall Garrett score 54.63), Inadequate application of manure and fertilizer (overall Garrett score 52.85 rank III), Lack of storage facilities (overall Garrett mean score 51.39 with rank IV) and Lack of awareness about the benefits of scheme overall Garrett score 50.89 (rank V).
