The constraints regarding adoption of fodder production technology were studied in Bundelkhand region. A  total of 180 respondents were selected from 4 districts of regions representing both UP and MP part of Bundelkhand in the study. It was found that 84.1% of farmer- respondents have shown that small land holding was the primary constraint for less adoption of fodder technology in these area, 78.87 % of farmers have shown lack of irrigation was the second most important reason for less adoption of fodder technology. The main reason for less Knowledge of fodder production technologies were lack of awareness about improved technologies followed by lack of on-farm guidance/training,  lack of lesser resources and lesser literacy. The correlation between knowledge gap and adoption gap was highly significant and positive.
