Swamp land is a marginal land so rice farming in swamps has a relatively high risk related to the level of technical efficiency achieved. This research was conducted with the aim of identifying the level of technical efficiency and the factors that influence technical inefficiency in swamp rice farming in Lakbok Subdistrict, Ciamis District. The sample size of 41 farmers taken using simple random sampling. The analysis was carried out using a stochastic frontier production function. The results showed that the average level of technical efficiency was 0.78. Education and family size have a significant effect on technical inefficiency
