The present study was carried out, in the year 2005, with the objective to identify the constraints in adoption of sugarcane production technology by interviewing 150 sugarcane growers from ten different villages of command area of Vaidyanath Co-operative Sugar Mill Ltd, Pangari, (Maharashtra). The research variable constraint was operationalized as the difficulties faced by sugarcane growers for adoption of sugarcane production technology. The constraints encountered by most of the respondents in adoption of sugarcane production technology were irregular supply of electricity, high cost of pesticides, inadequacy of irrigation water at required time, non availability of labour for intercultural operations, high cost of fertilizers, non availability of good quality manure and lack of knowledge about spraying of insecticides. Non availability of contact office near the village and transportation of sugarcane sets were also the constraints faced by the sugarcane growers. Timely and regular supply of inputs at cheaper rates, with regular supply of electricity and ensuring remunerative price to sugarcane were some of suggestions made by sugarcane growers.
