Present study is an attempt to investigate the empirical relationship of production of dates, type of the farmer, tree holding and the distance of farm to the market in district Khairpur. Cross sectional data has been collected through self-administered questionnaire. Randomly selected 202 small farmers (holding 5 or less than 5 acres of land) were interviewed. The empirical relationship has been established using Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) method of multiple regressions. The results indicate that the farm to market distance has a negatively significant impact on the production of dates. The production of dates has a statistically weak relationship with farms where the farmers grow trees on contract than that of the trees which are owned by the farmers. As per the standardized coefficients, the ownership of the trees by the farmers is the dominant factor affecting the date production rather than the trees taken on contract.
