Abstract: The research systems have though generated highly useful and appropriate technologies for rural women, most of these have either been not adopted or adopted partially by them. There are quite a few no. of rural women who falls into ‘early adopters’ category but due to several social, economic, situational or technological problems they tend to reject the technology, discontinue it or partially adopt it. Hence, a study was conducted to find out the various possible problems faced by rural women in adoption of homestead technologies. A study was conducted on 225 rural women from three districts of Bihar, constituting 25 respondents from the nine selected villages (three from each district). Data was collected through interview schedule in 2013. The major problems expressed by majority of the respondents were- less number of trainings conducted, too short duration of training, lack of awareness among people, raw materials not available, poor family income, dual responsibility, difficulty to acquire perfect skill etc. to figure out a few.
