The present study highlights different constraints perceived by tribal aonla growers in adoption of recommended aonla production technology. The study was carried out in purposively selected Jhadol Panchayat Samiti from out of the three tribal Panchayat samities of Udaipur district of Rajasthan. The quantitative and qualitative data were collected through interview schedule, discussion, observation and available secondary sources. A list of constraints was prepared and divided in four major categories viz., technical, economical, storage, marketing and general constraints. Total 80 respondents were randomly selected from the identified villages as sample. The responses were counted and converted into mean percent score and were accorded rank based of mean percent score. It was observed that economical constraints (MSP 65.51%) were most important and ranked 1st was followed by storage and marketing constraints (MSP 64.13%), general constraints (MSP 55.77%) and technical constraints (MSP 52.89%) which were accorded II, III and IV ranks in rank order by the respondents. Lack of skill in using modern irrigation system, Long juvenile period, High cost of establishment of orchards, lack of credit facilities, lack of preservation industry, lack of storage facilities in the area, managing big trees, were major constraints causing serious concern to the aonla growers.
