Economic losses due to constraints influencing off season vegetable growers are recognized as a major problem of vegetable growers in district Mohali of Punjab. This study was conducted with an objective to assess the farmers ranking on various constraints influencing off season vegetable growers in two blocks of district Mohali which were selected for the present study. Garrett’s ranking technique was followed to analyse the constraints as perceived by vegetable farmers. Out of 60 vegetable farmers contacted, the study revealed that, the major challenges experienced by off season vegetable growers in block Majri & Kharar of district Mohali are high cost of inputs like seed, fertilizers, sarkanda grass (Saccharum munja
) etc followed by high price of rented land followed by pest and diseases further followed by low market price/price fluctuation and shortage of labour etc.
Therefore, necessary suitable steps should be taken by key stakeholders to remove the constraints identified.
