The study was conducted on 120 dairy farmers randomly selected from the 3 district of Haryana, namely Jind, Charkhi Dadri and Yamunanagar to know about relationship between socioeconomic attributes with knowledge and constraints of fodder production practices among dairy farmers. From each selected district one block was selected randomly and from each block two villages were selected randomly. The data were collected personally through structured interview schedule during 2019-20. The statements of constraints were related with the fodder production and practices i.e. input oriented, marketing, technical and feeding aspects. The list of constraints was comprehensive and prepared by consulting literature, experts and field personals. It was open ended list to add farmers own constraints also. The data were collected by the researcher with the help of pre- tested interview schedule. Appropriate statistical tools were used to analyze the data and same were interpreted to address the objectives. The relationship between independent and dependent variables was found by correlation and regression coefficient. The study further revealed that gender of the respondents negatively and significantly whereas, land holding, mass media exposure, extension contacts, economic motivation, milk production were found to have positive and significant correlation with knowledge level of farmers about green fodder production. This suggests that when the family size increases constraints because this lead to distribution of various resources. Farmers exposed to mass media and have more extension then they get more information about different technology. Knowledge building activities like meetings, discussions, mass media etc. are to be planned and conducted by extension agencies to increase knowledge and thereby adoption of recommended practices.
