This study was designed to measure resource use efficiency in wheat production of Narmadapuram division of central Narmada vally region of Madhya Pradesh state. In the present investigation we use the double log type Cobb-Douglas type of production function. The sample of 216 Wheat farmers were selected from which input-output data collected based on 2012-13 rabi cropping season. Functional analysis of wheat crop revealed that Seed rate, fertilizers and manures, plant protection, irrigation facilities, Human Labour and Machine Labour, manure and fertilizers and, had the elasticity of 0.425**, 0.318**, -0.027*, 0.024, 0.415** and 0.251** respectively and was statistically significant. The value of MVP in respect of human labour (3.9), Machine labour (5.6), Seed rate (2.7), and fertilizers and manures (9.4), were more than unity level and the MVP value of irrigation facilities (0.4) and plant protection (0.1) were found to be less than unity level.
