Abstract

Indian bean is one of the most popular perennial vegetable crops in India. Basically, Indian bean is a multi-purpose crop which is being primarily grown for its green pod. However, it is consumed as vegetable, pulse and forage. In India, most of the rural people grow this vegetable at home. It was observed that there is a wide gap in adoption of improved cultivation practices. Looking to the importance of the problem, a study was conducted on constraints faced by Indian bean growers in adoption of improved Indian bean production technology. The study indicated that major constrains high cost of inputs, non-availability of improved seeds in required quantity in time, lack of knowledge to diagnose the pests and diseases in the crop, high incidence of pests & diseases, high price of insecticides/ pesticides & fungicides and irregular supply of electricity were major constrains faced by the Indian bean growers in adoption of improved Indian bean production technology. The important suggestions offered by the respondents were quality seed supply should be ensured, input should be supplied at subsidized rate, remunerative price of farm produce, timely technical guidance should be provided to the farmers and sufficient electricity should be provided.
