Abstract: The investigation was done at Anand district of Gujarat State. A random sample of 120 farmers who had participated in Krishi Mahotsav was studied. Ex-post-facto research design was used for the study. Major constraints faced by farmers were lack of training program regarding improved agricultural practices during Krishi Mahotsav, lack of time for discussion, lack of proper market-oriented information and lack of value addition related information. Major suggestions given were training programmes should be conducted for the farmers regarding improved agricultural practices during Krishi Mahotsav, place of organization of Krishi Mahotsav should be based on Agro-ecosystem basis rather than panchayat basis, providing market-oriented information and providing value addition related information.
