This paper examines the impact of credit on production of green leaf in Golaghat district of Assam. A sample of 136 growers has been selected through multistage sampling technique. To investigate whether use of credit influences the production of green leaf, a multiple linear regression model has been fitted by considering output of green leaf as the dependent variable and farm size, amount of credit, labour in mandays, fertilizer used and value of machinery as independent variables. Results show that size of the garden, labour used and amount of credit has significant positive impact on production of green leaf. The impact of other variables like fertilizer and value of machinery on production are found to be insignificant.
