The study was conducted in purposively selected districts of Hisar, Rohtak and Jhajjar Haryana
state involving 61, 47 and 33 numbers of PWPS adopter farmers from each district, respectively
along with an equal number of non beneficiaries adjoining to the beneficiaries. The Technical
Constraints reported by adopter farmers were the technology work in less than 8 meters water
table and it does not works in cold / winter days. Similar results were also obtained in case of
non adopter respondents. “High cost of PWPS” was found to be the most serious financial
constraint as observed by both adopter and non adopter respondents. “Lack of extension
literature” and “Lack of package of practices for PWPS irrigation farming system” were considered
to be the major extension constraints among the adopter respondents. However, in case of non
adopter farmers, “Lack of attention of mass media” was found to be the most serious
extension constraint.
