The present study was undertaken to find out appropriate model using seven contemporary model selection criteria that could best describe the growth pattern of rice production in Bangladesh during the time periods 1971-72 to 2004-05. It appeared from the study that the best fitted model for rice production in Bangladesh was quadratic linear and cubic model. It means that the assumption of constant annual rate of growth in percent that lies behind the use of exponential/compound model was not true for the growth pattern of rice production in Bangladesh.
