This study assessed the contribution of area, yield, and their interaction to growth in the production of rice as well as estimated the compound annual growth rate in the area, production, and yield of rice in Tripura using time series data for the period 1995-96 to 2020-21 collected from various published sources. The trend of growth in area, production, and yield of rice under SRI from 2002-03 to 2015-16 using three years moving averages was significant.  However, there was a slight reduction in the percentage coverage of SRI to the total rice area for the last five years. The decomposition analysis revealed that during the period from 1995-96 to 2020-21, the yield effect has the highest contribution to the change in the production of rice in the state. So, providing incentives and subsidies to the farmers for the continuance of SRI practice would enhance the production and livelihoods of the farmers.
