Abstract


A study was conducted with the objective of studying the constraints faced by agripreneurs in adopting KAU (Kerala Agricultural University) technology. A sample of 100 respondents who had adopted KAU technology were selected using simple random sampling technique. The study revealed that lack of adequate money for day-to-day expenses was the most important financial constraint faced by the agripreneurs, followed by lack of market information. Non-availability of input materials and high labour cost were the major production and labour constraints and multiple roles was the major personal constraint faced by the agripreneurs.
