The transition from conventional to organic agriculture is semi-organic farming. This study aims to analyze the technical efficiency and the factors that affect the technical inefficiency of semi-organic rice farming. The research was conducted in Sleman Regency, Special Region of Yogyakarta which was selected purposively. The number of respondents was 100 farmers determined by the multistage random sampling method. The Cobb Douglass frontier production function was used to analyze the technical efficiency. The results showed that the production factors that had a positive effect on semi-organic rice production were manure, phonska fertilizer, family workforce and non-family workforce, while the urea fertilizer had a negative effect. Semi-organic rice farming in Sleman Regency is not technically efficient with an average technical efficiency coefficient of 0.518. The age of farmer and land status has a effect on the technical inefficiency of semi-organic rice farming. Semi-organic rice farmers in Sleman Regency should reduce the use of urea fertilizer because it has a negative effect on production.
