Rice as the main source of calories for more than 59% of the world’s population. The researcher wants to contribute to the development of rice production in Asia for food security. This research aims to determine the effect of credit, quality of human resources, area harvested, and fertilization consumption on rice production in Asia between 1990 and 2019 with the Fixed Effect estimation technique. The secondary data is collected from FAO, the World Bank, and UNESCO. The results of the study showed that credit for agriculture, area harvested, and fertilization consumption had a positive and significant impact on rice production. Meanwhile, the quality of human resources has a positive, but not significant impact on rice production. Integrated support between the government and the private sector with farmers is needed through policies and programs to increase the affordability and quality of the components of rice production factors.
