The crop’s yield level is found to be much higher than that of the national level, but its demand in the state is much higher that the supply having known this importance, the present paper attempts to assess sustainability of rice crop in Manipur With the help of primary data collected from 152 farmers and using PCA, the study found that 20 percent of farmer as sustainable, 64 percent as moderate and 16 as vulnerable. This implies that the rice cultivation in Manipur has not been very impressive, despite its favorable agro-climatic condition of the five dimensions included in measuring sustainability, social factor was igured out at the top, followed by the economic factor.
