One of issues facing by agricultural sector is the declining number and high-cost spend for agricultural labour, and followed by declining number of agricultural mechanizations. It affects to diverse planting time and the limitation of cultivated-area. Hence, this study conducted to measure the effectiveness of agricultural mechanization on rice cultivation in Aras Village (Air Putih District), started from January to December 2018. Some observed-variables are the field work capacity, number of labour, total cultivated-area and benefit cost ratio. The results show that jarwo transplanter has the capacity to replace twenty-one of agricultural labours and be economized IDR 405,000/ha. Meanwhile, the usage of combine harvester has ability to replace thirty-six of agricultural labours and be economized IDR 610,000/ha. Using agricultural mechanization share a higher B/C ratio compare with farmers style by 2.5 and 1.2, respectively. The usage of agricultural mechanization is mainly important to enhance rice production and farmers’ income.
