No, this is the proper technique:

SELECT PROD_DATE
FROM MYTABLE
WHERE
    PROD_DATE >= DATEADD(MONTH, DATEDIFF(MONTH, 0, GETDATE()), 0) AND
    PROD_DATE < DATEADD(MONTH, DATEDIFF(MONTH, 0, GETDATE()) + 1, 0)

You always want to avoid using a function on a table column if at all reasonably possible.
