Use Function importance() which defines the importance or order of fields in a decision tree.

The functions return a data frame with field names, accuracy for each prediction and accuracy is displayed.

Ex: Importance(randomforest_model).

mtcars.rf <- randomForest(mpg ~ ., data=mtcars)
> importance(mtcars.rf)

cyl  17.311478     180.55303

drat  7.041252      61.64077
wt   18.566081     248.37960
