Abstract: 

Rice is a strategic agricultural product in Iran. Rice was a major agricultural commodity imported in Iran for the past two decades. This study evaluates the effects of agricultural policies on production of the major rice groups (quality long-grain rice, high-yield long-grain rice, quality medium-grain rice, and short-grain rice) in Gilan and Mazandaran provinces. For this purpose, rice production cost statistics by Agricultural Ministry during 1994-2000, was used. A policy analysis matrix (PAM) is an effective tool to measure the impact of government policy on the private and social profitability of economic activities. The results of this study indicated that most of rice producers earned positive private profits (profits in market price) at current agricultural policies. However, all of producers had negative social profits (profits in shadow price). Accordingly, protection of rice is positive but resource allocation is not effective and it has negative effects on national income.
