The present study was undertaken to examine constraints in the production and marketing of maize in Karimnagar district of Telangana, India. A representative sample of 120 maize growers were drawn from the study area by using multi-stage random sampling technique on the basis of concentration of area under maize. The findings of the study revealed that the sample farmers were suffered from crop damages by wild animals and birds, non-availability of labour, high wages of labour. High cost of inputs was also serious constraint which was faced by 58.33 per cent maize growers. More specifically non-availability of credit, poor marketing facilities, lack of storage facilities, non-availability of seed suitable to the local needs, late sowing of crop, high weed infestation etc. In the next order Abnormal weather condition was one of the major problems which were expressed by 50 per cent maize growers. Another constraint was low price for grain was expressed by 35 per cent maize growers.
