In Punjab, India, Kinnow (Citrus nobilis × Citrus deliciosa) area and production has increased profusely in arid irrigated and sub-mountainous zones. With all viable environmental conditions present in district Barnala farmers still faced some constraints in Kinnow cultivation. Major constraints in Kinnow plantation: die-back, yield, quality, planting material, technical guidance, socio-cultural, post-harvest management. Present study was conducted with the objective to extent in adoption and perceived constraints in Kinnow cultivation. The constraints as perceived by the respondents were measured by the scores on the basis of magnitude of the problems. While analyzing overall constraints as perceived by farmers the findings revealed that absence of agro processing units WMS (Weighted Mean Score) 2.87, lack of marketing at village level with WMS of 2.84, fruits with prolong juvenile period and higher costs for orchard establishment with WMS of 2.71, continuous adoption of traditional practices for growing fruit WMS of 2.70, lack of involvement of household women in orchards WMS of 2.61, lesser priority is given to orchard plantation than other farm activities WMS of 2.61, lack of knowledge regarding packaging and grading of produce WMS of 2.56, lack of knowledge about recommended fertilizer and manure application WMS of 2.52, lack of knowledge about current advance technologies WMS of 2.47 were major constraints faced by the farmers.
