Abstract

Groundnut is one of the important oilseeds and it contributes substantially to Indian economy. Its importance
is notable in terms of nutrition as well as revenue generation. The present study was carried out in Dhenkanal
and Angul districts of Odisha involving 220 respondents chosen through multistage simple random sampling
procedure. Data were collected through pre-tested interview schedule. The constraints were measured at 3-
point continuum i.e. not serious, serious and most serious with scores 1, 2 and 3 respectively. Institutional
constraint was identified as the most serious among all the major dimensions of constraints. Inadequate
knowledge on recommended practices of the production technology, paucity of credit facility, fluctuating
market price, lack of awareness about new technology were the other constraints in decreasing order of
seriousness. A well-orchestrated institutional mechanism need to be thought of for support and incentives to
the farmers.
