A study was conducted in Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh with the objective of studying the constraints perceived by the cotton growers, with a sample size of 120 respondents. In this study, respondents were asked to rank their preferences which they perceived more by using Garrett Ranking Method. The constraints were categorized into technological, bio physical, socio-economic, marketing and institutional constraints. Under technological, insufficient training programs (63.00%) was the major problem, followed by Inadequate irrigation facilities (65.70%) was the leading problem in bio-physical constraints, high cost of chemical inputs (63.62%) in the socio-economic constraints, lack of remunerative prices (62.70%) under the marketing constraints and Lack of proper storage facilities (67.75%) was the major problem under the institutional constraints. These findings draw attention of extension workers, researchers and policy makers. At research level action can be initiated for the introduction of ideal cotton varieties with short duration, compact plant types with high harvest index resistant/tolerant to biotic and abiotic stress and amenable for mechanical picking and resistance to pest and diseases, at policy level action can be initiated on promoting one variety communities, seed villages, storage facilities, community plant protection and protective irrigation and at extension level more training for farmer groups to create awareness on latest production technologies in cotton.

Keywords: Technological, Bio-physical, Socio-economic, Marketing and Institutional constraints, Garrett ranking method
