An attempt has been made to study constraints faced by the greenhouse farmers in Chittoor district. For this purpose, five mandals were selected based on highest average number of greenhouses. The data were collected from each respondent through personal interview method with the help of structured questionnaire during 2019-20. Garrett ranking technique was employed to analyze each of the constraints affecting the adoption of greenhouse technology. To sustain the self-sufficiency in food production we need effective technologies, which can improve the productivity and sustainability of our major farming systems. Greenhouse technology, one among improved technologies that ensures stability in agriculture production.
