Abstract:

Despite the increasing penetration and influence of social media, researchers and extension personnel abstain from using it due to various constraints. In this view, a study was conducted to analyze constraints perceived by researchers and extension personnel in using social media in Karnal district of Haryana state, India. A total of 40 researchers and 40 extension personnel each were selected randomly constituted sample size and data collection was done through semi-structured interview schedule. Results of the study revealed that Researchers and extension personnel felt that weak research extension linkage (14.83) and unsuitable and incomprehensible information (14.50) were the main constraints respectively followed by unsuitable and incomprehensible information (14.50) and inadequate services (14.33) respectively. The study recommends the need for considering constraints perceived by researchers and extension personnel as they influence the generation and exchange of agriculture related information.
