Abstract: The present study was conducted in the purposively selected Aurangabad district of Marathwada region because the numbers of farm ponds were more. The objective of the study was to study the constraints faced by the beneficiaries in use of farm pond. Four talukas namely Paithan, Aurangabad, Gangapur and Vaijapur were selected purposively. From each talukas five villages and four respondents from each village were selected randomly thus sample size of eighty respondents were selected for the present study. The respondents were interviewed with the help of structured schedule prepared for the purpose. One score was given for each correctly used and a score zero for wrong use or no use of it by the respondents. The data were analysed with the help of frequency, percentage mean and standard deviation. It is concluded that the respondents were having middle age with higher secondary education status, medium land holding and medium farming (6-17 years) experience, mostly living in nuclear family of four to six members with medium social participation, use of information sources and utility perception with high extension contact. Major constraints faced by the beneficiary farmers in farm pond technology were: lack of availability of water due to uneven and low rainfall, protective land goes under farm pond, problems in collection of documents, high rate of evapotranspiration during summer season.
