Rice is among the most important cereals grown in different parts of Ethiopia as food crop. The country is characterized with immense potentials for growing the crop. This study was aimed to identify factors determining market supply of rice by smallholder farmers in Guraferda District, Southwest Ethiopia. Primary and secondary data were used for the study. The data were collected from 120 rice producer farmers selected through three stage sampling technique. Econometric model was used for the analysis of the data. Multiple linear regression model results indicated that land under rice, family size, lagged price of rice and number of oxen significantly affects quantity of rice supplied to the market. Quantity supply of rice could be enhanced through adequate supply of improved varieties, controlling of disease and pests, important to make youth participate in to rice production and marketing activities, developing market information system and encouraged farmers to have their own oxen.
