The need to mitigate the impacts of climate change on rice production requires having information on climate change indicators as well as impacts of such indicators on rice production. This research was designed to determine such indicators and impacts of climate change on rice production. A descriptive survey design was adopted for the study and data was generated by administering questionnaire on a sample of 350 rice farmers randomly sampled from all rice farmers in the study area. Two research questions were answered using mean and standard deviation while a null hypothesis was tested using ANOVA. The result of the study shows that Rice Farmers experience some climate change indicators which have impacts on rice production system. Based on these findings and their associated implications, appropriate recommendations were made among which are: Experts developing agricultural extension programmes on climate change should involve rice farmers who are already aware of climate change indicators for meaningful contribution and effective participation in the programme development process; Agricultural extension agents should identify rice farmers who are already aware of the impact of climate change on rice production for agricultural input supply and other palliatives including subsidies.
