The study was conducted in Acharya N.G. Ranga Agricultural University, Lam, Guntur. A comprehensive personal interview schedule was used for collecting information. All the teachers available at the time of study from five constituent agricultural colleges of ANGRAU were selected as sample for the study. The respondents were asked to express the constraints and suggestions to overcome the constraints in utilization of Instructional Technologies. The weighted sum for a particular constraint was worked out by summing up of all the individual score of each constraint elicited by the respondents. The ranking of constraints was done according to the weighted sum and percentage of each statement.78.89 per cent of respondent felt in adequate funding as most important constraint. Other important constraints were crowded class (73.89%), lack of time of teachers to master the emerging technologies (69.63%), lack of administration support for instructional technology acquisition (65.93%), lack of facilities to accommodate new technologies (65.00%) and lack of teacher training in instructional technology (63.89%). Major suggestions given to overcome the constraints were, involvement of teachers in teaching than non-academic work (88.89%), maintenance of proper teacher-student ratio (86.11%), recruitment of teachers for reducing workload (79.44%), providing advanced trainings for teachers (76.11%), provision of sufficient funds in time (73.33%). Majority of constraints were related with infrastructure and administration.
