The main focused of this study was to evaluate the adoption of improved rice production technologies among farmers in Kudan Local Government Area of Kaduna state. The specific objectives of the study are to:  describe the socio-economic characteristics of rice farmers, identify the sources of information used by rice   farmers, describe the level of adoption of improved rice production technologies, determine the factors that influence the adoption of  improved rice production technologies, identify the problems of adoption of improved rice production technologies in the study area. Multi-stage sampling technique was employed in the study. Ten 10% of rice farmers were randomly selected from each of the selected villages using simple random sampling method, data were collected with aids of structured questionnaire. The average age of the respondents was 33 years while the minimum and maximum ages were 17 and 60years, with standard error of 0.88 respectively. Result shows that about 94.7% of the respondents were male while the remaining percentages (25.0%) were female. Majority of the farmers (40%) had an average production experience ranged between1-10 years with the average mean of 16.9 years respectively. The result indicates that about 32% of the farmers had the information on improved rice adoption technologies from the radio. Result further shows that majority of the farmers (29%) adopted improved seeds. The coefficient of multiple determinations is 0.56 indicating that the explanatory varies in the model explained about 56.0% of the variation in adoption of improved rice production in the study area. Lack of technical knowhow was the most severe constraint of rice producers with about 30% of rice farmers attesting to this fact.
