|Abstract: ||Farmers’ supply responsiveness planting rice in Jambi Province was estimated using Meta-
Profit analysis function. The objective of study is to analyze rice farmers’ supply response.
Research was conducted in Jambi Province in the year of 2010. Result showed that farmers’
profit planting rice increased because its price increased. Furthermore, its share decreased
when its labour wage increased. This implied to farmers to plant rice because rice was
relatively more profitable than other plants. The result showed that farmers tended to pushed
risk in planting decision. As expected that irrigation index was also the important significant
factor. Following it found that its profit planting rice increased in wet season. This results
were consistent with the fact that the water availability was important factor to plant rice.
The consistency of previous result, it found that profit to plant rice was the positive
determination with irrigation index. This implied that government policy in agriculture had
positive impact on technological adoption. The analysis production function suggested that
labour and fertilizer elasticities higher than zero significantly. Production rice elasticity by
considering the number of labour used was a little bit lower than fertilizer. As expected, it
found that rice production elasticity by considering irrigation index was bigger than zero
