Cite article:- Godara A.K., Kumar Pardeep, Mehta S.K., Singh Nasib (2024). CORRELATES OF CONSTRAINTS AFFECTING THE PRODUCTIVITY OF EXTENSION SCIENTISTS. Indian Journal of Agricultural Research. 43(1): 42-46. doi: .
The study was conducted on 110 extension scientists working under the Directorate of Extension
Education, CCS, Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar. The study revealed that majority of the
extension scientists (65.45%) had perceived moderate level of constraints affecting their job
productivity followed by high (18.18%) and low (16.36%). The difficulty in getting funds in time,
step motherly treatment to extension scientists and the adulterated inputs influenced adversely
the credibility of the extension scientists, although, university credibility was high yet not able to
meet farmers’ requirements of input particularly improved seeds and late reporting about attack
of diseases, insect-pests etc. by farmers, lack of conveyance/transportation facility, lack of
motivation and incentives for extension work and limited financial allocation for extension
activities were the major constraints affecting the productivity of extension scientists. The partial
regression coefficients indicated that education, job satisfaction, organisational health, job stress
and supervisory style contributed significantly to variance in constraints affecting the productivity
of extension scientists
