India has been the home of spices since time immemorial. It is the world largest producer, consumer and exporter of seed spices which are being cultivated widely in the country over different agro- climatic zones. Fenugreek is an important seed spices crop of Rajasthan. It is cultivated more than 1.57 lac hectare area with production of 1.9 lac tonnes. Major fenugreek growing districts of Rajasthan are Bikaner, Jodhpur, Churu, Sikar, jhunjhunu and Nagaur. This study was conducted in Nagaur district of Rajasthan in the year 2013-14 to know the adoption level of fenugreek growers and to ascertain the causes for low adoption of fenugreek (pan methi) production technology. A sample of 120 respondents was proportionate randomly selected for the study. A schedule was used to investigate adoption level as well as reasons responsible for low adoption being faced by the respondent in adoption of fenugreek technology. The study revealed that an appreciable level of adoption was found in irrigation management, soil and land preparation and taking seed yield from crop under high level category. The five major constraints were included in the study i.e. input, financial, marketing, technical and general constraints. Among these constraints, marketing constraints was reported as the most important which affects the adoption of fenugreek cultivation stood rank first followed by general constraints, technical constraints, input, constraints were perceived by the respondents and placed rank second, third and fourth, respectively however financial constraints were faced as least important by the respondents in adoption of fenugreek production technology.
