The research study was conducted in Bidar district of Karnataka with the objectives of finding the socio, economic and psychological profile of Redgram growers and the constraints they faced in application of recommended technologies of farm universities to increase the productivity to meet the increasing demand for pluses in India. The study found that the Redgram growers had low social, psychological and economic profile, which inhibited them to apply the recommended technologies of farm universities to the full extent. The extent of application of production technologies was 60.20 percent. The remaining technologies were either partially applied or not applied. The perceived constraints of the growers were many among them, the most severe one was less remunerative price as the market price was highly fluctuating and coupled with, the support price announced by the Government was meager and was not procuring all the quantity grain, secondly there was high labour wages and their scarcity to undertake the timely production operations, likewise the three other constraints were ranked. There is need to address the constraints with appropriate technical, behavioral and policy interventions by the developmental agencies.

Keywords: Socio, economic and psychological profile, Redgram technologies, Farm university technologies, Application of technologies, Market price, Labour scarcity.
