Background: The practice of rice-cum-fish is extensively practice by Apatani tribe living in Lower Subansiri district of Arunachal Pradesh. The current study aimed to access the inputs impact on output, a resource-use-efficiency model on traditional paddy-cum-fish culture has been fitted.
Methods: The present research investigation was carried out during the agricultural year 2014-15 with a total of 70 numbers of paddy-cum-fish respondents were selected by following a multi-stage simple random quota sampling technique.
Result: Study reveals that the majority of the farmer’s were dependent upon agriculture and traditional paddy-cum-fish culture, the total cost of cultivation of traditional paddy-cum-fish culture was ₹ 28,782.70 per ha with average yield of 2.76 q per ha. The constraints faced by the traditional paddy-cum-fish farmers during production and marketing viz: poor marketing channel, price fluctuation and exploitation of farmers by intermediaries thereby farmer receives less profit etc.
