Chickpea is one of the most important legume crops of Gujarat state. However, it was observed wide gap in between existing yield and potential yield in to the chickpea production. Looking to the importance of the problem, a study was conducted in Junagadh district of Gujarat State to find out major constraints faced by the chickpea growers in adoption of recommended chickpea production technology. Four talukas; Maliya, Keshod, Mendarda and Junagadh of Junagadh district were purposively selected for the research. Total three villages were randomly selected from each selected taluka and 10 farmers were randomly selected from each village. Thus, total sample size was 120 farmers. In this investigation, it was observed that majority of the chickpea growers faced the constraint about high cost of farm inputs (1.83 mean score), followed by non-availability of appropriate market price on farm produce (1.70 mean score), low production due to pest and disease infestations (1.58 mean score), high cost of labor (1.48 mean score), and lack of proper knowledge about improved varieties (1.35 mean score).
