Abstract


A study was conducted in Nalanda, Muzaffarpur and Patna districts of Bihar state on 270 randomly selected potato growers to assess the constraints perceived by them in adoption of potato technology. It was found that involvement of middle man, cheating by the traders, low sale price of potato, shortage of electricity, gluts, poor quality and adulterated fungicides, lack of cold storage facilities, low risk bearing ability of the potato framers, lack of motivation from SDA and State Department of Horticulture and unavailability of good quality potato seed to the farmers were the most serious constraints
