production targets/forecast levels of production

The production targets specified in the plans differ from the forecast levels of production contained in the licence agreements.

There's not much difference, especially since both are in the future. In the past, the target might well be very different from the actual production.

production rate

The are similar in meaning, except the former has a regulatory connotation.

Without broader context I would say something like this, "...production rates stipulated by plans differ from predicted production levels given in license agreements."

The difference is pretty much the same as between extraction and production. They are very similar in meaning but are used differently.
