The economic viability of rice-fish culture practiced by the fanners of Assam in North- Eastern part of India was evaluated using techno-economic approach. The fanners followed extensive level farming practice using low input technology. Cobb-Douglas production function was used to determine the input-output relationship of the system. The cost and return evaluation shows that rice-fish culture can be a more profitable option than monoculture of paddy.
