The actual situation of the effect of flood is examined with a view to evaluate the rice production in Bangladesh. Ten villages by taking two villages from five sub districts of the Gazipur district of Bangladesh were selected for the study. Of the two villages, one village is located comparatively nearer to the sub district headquarter while the other one is located comparatively away from the sub district headquarter. Total 1000 farmers by taking 100 from each village were surveyed through pre structured questionnaire. The study is done through regression analyses. It is found that the coefficient of flood has significant and negative effects on rice production of all villages. Evidences show from the study that production of rice in the flood affected areas can rise by taking some steps.

Key words: Flood, farmers, rice yield, villages, Bangladesh.
