A study was conducted in Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Sonitpur to assess the problems faced by the trainees in utilizing knowledge gained in training programme. The respondents were purposively selected from the three training programmes conducted by the Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Sonitpur, one each on dairy, goatery and poultry farming. As per the guidelines in every training programme under the KVK a minimum of 25 trainees consisting of farmer, farm women or rural youth should participate. Therefore it was thought prudent to cover 25 trainees from each of the three training programme to make the sample 75. To fulfill the objectives of the study, data were collected through a pre-tested, reliable and valid interview schedule. The data thus collected were compiled, tabulated, processed and analyzed and organized according to the established standards and procedures and were subjected to appropriate statistical analysis in order to arrive at a conclusion. The ranking of constraints by key informants and trainees were ascertained by RBQ technique and the values of RBQ are presented in various tables. Inadequate capital (95.19) was assigned the first rank among all the constraints followed by “High rates of milch animal, chicks, improved breed of pigs and goats (80.76)”, “Low purchasing capability (77.00)”, “High cost of feed (70.19)”, “Lack of loan facilities (69.43)”, “Lack of supply of high yielder, improved breeds of goat, pig and poultry (56.43)”, “small size land holding (53.76)”, “Inability of the farmers to take risk in livestock entrepreneur (47.66)”, “Lack of organized market and problems in marketing (39.09)”, “Lack of breeding bull, boar and ram (38.38)”, “Lack of A.I facilities (34.71)”, “Irregular electricity (30.95)”, “Inadequate grazing land (28.00)” and “Lack of land for fodder cultivation (27.00)”. The value of Spearman’s Rank correlation coefficient was found to be 0.97 which was highly significant at 0.1% level of significance.
