Krishi Vigyan Kendra is an integral part of the National Agricultural Research System (NARS), aims at assessment of location specific technology modules in agriculture and allied enterprises, through technology assessment, refinement and demonstrations. The study was conducted in Shahdol division of M.P. using ex-post facto design. The present research work was entirely concerned with trainings conducted by Krishi Vigyan Kendras of Shahadol division during the last three years., Finally the sample was consisted of 120 trained farmers from selected 12 villages of three KVKs of Shahdol division. The study revealed that the major constraints experienced by the trained farmers were arranged in descending order on the basis of rank order as inadequate demonstrations and trials to develop confidence, insufficient monitoring and follow-up action, no planning of the outside exposure visit, lack of farmers’ participatory approach in implementation of trainings, Information about resource availability, marketing and credit orientation were not given, lack of close contact of the trainees with the trainers / scientists after completion of the training, the required technological inputs were not available at local level were not available at local level and lack of incentives and recognition to the scientists and farmers. The study also suggests that in view of developing self confidence and skill acquisition among the trained farmers sufficient number of demonstrations and trials should be conducted.
