Ekhande YS, Sawant PA, Holkar SC and Raykar SS
The present study was undertaken with the main objective to study the constraints faced by the academic staff members of agricultural universities. The study was conducted in four Agricultural Universities of Maharashtra state. In all 240 respondents were selected by using proportionate random sampling method. The “Ex-Post-Facto” research design was used for conducting the study. The data were collected through the personal interview. The data collected were processed and statistically analyzed by using statistical techniques like frequency and percentage. The major constraints were “Institution has not sufficient staff and funds for conducting teaching, research, extension activity (71.66 per cent)”, “There is no required laboratory facilities for conducting the experiments (65.83 per cent)” and “The decision regarding programs are made at higher levels without consulting subordinates (50.83 per cent)” were the major constraints experienced by the academic staff. Most of the academic staff suggested that institution should be provided with sufficient staff and fund for teaching, research and extension education activity (74.58 per cent), more laboratory facilities should be created (68.33 per cent) and teachers/scientists should be given training annually (55.83 per cent).
