New Agricultural Technologies generated by the Agricultural Scientists of Indian Council of Agricultural Research, Agricultural Universities and Scientists of NGOs etc. are of no use unless they are understood and put into practice by the farming community. Many constraints are considered responsible affecting the adoption pattern of technology. This investigation was undertaken to study the adoption pattern of the gram and groundnut crops in Bhilwara district, Rajasthan. The findings of the study indicated that there was different set of constraints for different practices as well as from crop to crop. Except age, 13 independent variables included in the study were significant and positively correlated with adoption of new technology. The poor economic conditions of the farmers were also responsible for non-adoption of the technology. It needs the assessment and refinement of the new technologies in view of the local farming situations as per results of the present study.
