Isabgol is the most important medicinal crop of Rajasthan. In recent years, interest of this crop has increased in the western countries because of the blood cholesterol lowering property of its husk. The seeds without husk are used as cattle feed which contains 17 to 19% protein. Other than medicinal uses, it is used in dying calico printing and ice-cream industries as a stabilizer. The present study was conducted in Jodhpur region of Rajasthan comprising two districts namely Barmer and Jodhpur. Since these two are leading districts in terms of area production of Isabgol in Rajasthan. Two panchayat samities from each districts were identified based on area production of Isabgol and eight Isabgol growing villages were selected randomly from each panchayat samities. In this way from Jodhpur district Phalodi and Bap Panchayat samities and from Barmer district Sadwa and Dhorimanna Panchayat samities were selected for the study purpose. Eight Isabgol growing villages were selected randomly villages namely Jagriya, Padiyal, Jaisla, Nokda Bhatiyan, Ajani ki dhani, Jambh Shakti dham udaser, Bhawar, Harpalia. The sample comprised of a total 120 respondents. The data were collected with the help of interview schedule through personal interview method by the investigator himself. Frequency, mean, percentage, rank, correlation and other appropriate methods were used for this study. The present research work would also helpful and useful for giving feedback to Agriculture University about farmers marketing of Isabgol crop and constraints faced by the farmers. The results show that among the enlisted Input constraints most important constraints “Unavailability of high yielding varieties seeds at the time of sowing” (80.83 MPS) and in Technical constraints most important constraint were “Lack of knowledge about improved varieties of Isabgol” (78.88 MPS). The results show that in Financial constraints most important constraint were “High cost of seeds of high yielding varieties” (75.00 MPS) and in Marketing constraints most important constraint were “High price fluctuation” (80.27 MPS).
