This study was conducted in the state of Rajasthan. Four major crop groups viz; cereals (pearlmillet, maize and wheat), pulses (moong bean, moth bean, kharif pulses and gram), oilseeds (soyabean and rapeseed and mustard) and others (cotton and clusterbean ) were selected for analysis. All the crops in the above groups having five per cent or more area under cultivation in a district were selected. The districts were selected on the basis of last five years average (2005-06 to 2009-10). The main krishi upaj mandi from each district generally located at its headquarters was selected purposively. From each mandi one commission agent was selected at random basis and 10 of the farmers who were available on the day of interview at the mandi were randomly interrogated. Thus a total number of 10x29=290 farmers were selected for studying the constraints faced by the farmers. Primary data were collected for the agricultural year 2014-15. The timely non-availability of inputs like HYV seeds, chemical fertilizers, plant protection chemicals etc at village level was one of the major production constraints faced by the cultivators of major field crops. High cost of improved variety seeds was the major economic problem. The lack of irrigation facilities was one of the major technical problems followed by no protection of crops from adverse weather conditions. Non-availability of the inputs on time in the market for production of crops was one of the major infrastructural problems. The lack of cash for down payment was one of the major financial problems and low and imbalanced rate of fertilizer consumption was one of the major other constraints in the study area.
