Organic agriculture is an opportunity for sustainable agricultural development but some farmers are reluctant to convert because of the constraints/problems they face in its adoption. Keeping above in view, the research was conducted in the purposively selected three districts of Haryana viz., Kaithal, Karnal and Kurukshetra, because of the maximum area as well as production of rice. The problem about human labour among technological and production constraints, inadequacy of required manures and bio-fertilizers among manures and bio-fertilizers constraints and the inclination of the farmers towards use of chemical pesticides among plant protection constraintsranked first with weighted mean score of 2.93, 2.60 and 2.59, respectively.
