ABSTRACT:The paper examines the allocative efficiency of labour resource (in land clearing and weeding) for swamp rice production in Obudu Local Government Arca of Cross River Stale. Sixty four (64) rice farmers were selected and used for the study. Data collected include; output of paddy, quantity of fortilizer applied, farm size, and most especially labour used in land clearing and weeding. A multiple regression analysis approach involving the use of Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) estimation techniquewas adopted. The ratio of the marginal value product of labour (MVP) to labour wage rate (Pi) was used to estimate the labour allocative efficiency. The studly revealed that though labour for clearing and weeding had a significant and positive influence on output of swamp rice in the area, however, the resource was inefficiently allocated
