Entrepreneurship has been recognized as a vital tool for bringing rural prosperity. The impact study on entrepreneurship development programme (EDP) and licensing of post-harvest technology in terms of promoting agro processing was undertaken. Multiple regression and Garrett’s ranking techniques were applied to understand the factors affecting the adoption of technology and prioritization of constraints (i.e., techno-economic, financial, market related, etc.), respectively. EDPs found to be effective towards encouraging and motivating potential entrepreneurs, resultant to establishment of economically viable enterprises. Market was found to be key driver, as it has positive and significant (p� 0.01) relationship with adoption of processing technology. Further, high cost of raw materials and competition among private companies were rated as top most constraints by the entrepreneurs.
