The present investigation entitled "Resource Use Efficiency (RUE) in Maize Production in Surajpur District of Chhattisgarh" during 2017 - 2018. total of 60 farmers were selected randomly from six villages were representing marginal, small, medium and large farmers. Maize crop was selected for the study purpose. The primary data were collected through personal interview from sampled households using survey method using well structure schedule. Data analysis was carried out using tabular and practical analytical tools. The average size of the family was estimated at 5.53 and 71.08 percent of literacy was found. . The average sampled household operational land holding size was 2.00 hectares with a cropping intensity of 192.00 per cent. Rs.29427.78/ha were calculated on average cost of maize cultivation. It was estimated that the total net return was Rs.33967.76. The overall maize input - output ratio on the sampled household was 1: 2.20. The function of Cobb - Douglas production was found to be best suited for this study. Expenditure on plant protection measures, machine labour, manure and fertilizer had a significant impact on the production of maize.
