Abstract: Chickpea in India have long been considered as good source of protein thus play a crucial role in healthy diets, sustainable food production. Study on constraints analysis of chickpea was conducted during agriculture year 2017-18. Keeping in the view their food and nutritional security and also income and employment generation in Auraiya District of Uttar Pradesh assumes special significance. The study based on Constraints analysis of chickpea production in Auraiya District of Uttar Pradesh. District Auraiya was purposively selected and the block Auraiya having highest acreage under gram was selected purposively for the study. List of the villages from selected block were prepared along with acreage under Chickpea cultivation and 5 villages were selected randomly for study. In all 100 number of farmers were selected proportionally from each category of farmers and classified into three categories i.e. marginal (below 1 ha), small (1-2 ha) and medium (2-4 ha). The data were collected by personal interview technique with the help of pre-tested structured schedule. The period of enquiry pertain to the agricultural year 2017-18.The study revealed that four types of constraints faced and raised by the chickpea growers i.e. related to Technical problems, Financial problems, Managerial problems and Miscellaneous problems. Technical problems were ranked first followed by financial problems, Managerial problems and miscellaneous problems. All the problems were commonly faced by Marginal farmers followed by small and medium farmers. Except problem related to miscellaneous commonly faced by small farmers and followed by medium and marginal farmers. Thus, it concluded that problems and size group of farms have indirect relationship except miscellaneous problems it means the size of farm increases problems faced are decreases but in case of miscellaneous problems, miscellaneous problems not show any definite problems. Good quality seed, adequate farmer’s training, crop loan and fencing of farms facilitated to the farmers. Chickpea is a lucrative crop and it can help the farmers in doubling their income in the study area.
