Farm innovators plays a vital role in innovation development and they supplement formal research, since these innovators develop cost effective, eco-friendly and easy to adopt technologies. Farmers develop the appropriate technologies/innovations to ease their work and which are suitable for their local conditions. A study was conducted to study constraints faced by the farm innovators. The study has been conducted during the year 2016-17 in seven districts of southern Karnataka. Among these districts, 36 farm innovators were identified for the study. The personal and socio-psychological profile of the farmers shows that more number of farmers are young, possessed medium level of education, farming experience, large land holding and high cosmopoliteness, mass media exposure, achievement orientation, management orientation, risk orientation, innovative proneness and scientific orientation etc., The major constraints faced by the farm innovators were lack of technical guidance (80.55 %), Lack of financial support (58.33 %), Less documentation work (55.55 %) followed by others and suggestion offered were providing proper technical guidance (66.66 %) followed by providing financial assistance (55.55 %), Developing directory of farmers’ innovations (52.77 %) along with others.

Keywords: Farm innovators, Socio-economic profile, Constraints, Achievement orientation, Management orientation, Technical guidance
