Abstract:

The present study was conducted to investigate the major constraints faced by the chilli growers of Khammam District of Telangana. Data were collected through personal interview from 112 selected respondents of the ten villages with the help of well-structured questionnaire. Frequency and percentage were used to analyse the collected data. The collected information from the chilli growers revealed that major constraints in adoption of recommended Chilli production technologies were high labour charges (91.07%), high cost of agricultural inputs (83.03%), low market price of chilli (100.00%), lack of training regarding recommended chilli production technology (100.00%), lack of knowledge about insects, pests and diseases (80.35%), electricity problem (100.00%) etc. Further more, the respondents imparted some suggestions to overcome the constraints such as, minimum support price should be attractive (96.42%), rate of agricultural inputs should be less (86.60%), crop loan should be provided timely (83.03%), timely agricultural information should be imparted by extension officers (78.57%) etc.
