Apart from that, the research also examine and the pattern of input supply of rice in Malaysia rice production to improve production yield. The regression result from this study indicateand that changes in the schedule distribution and inspection is the key determinant of theuse in paddy productivity. However, the input supply does not influence the paddy productivity. Meanwhile, input supplies are not able to influence the effectiveness of the productivity of rice caused by factors subsidy content provided is insufficient inquantity specified. Inconclusion the dominant factor that successfully influence the paddy productivity is the schedule distribution and follow by inspection. The recommendation is action must be taken by the(Board of Plantation Industries Association)(FOA) is a must provide an adequate amount of input supply to farmers and by the procedures that are in limit.
