A study was conducted, to ascertain the constraints as perceived by the respondents in terms of accessibility to various information sources in Haryana. The study was restricted to 240 respondents from four agro-climatic zones of Haryana. From each zone one district was selected purposively on the basis of milch animal population. From each district two blocks were selected randomly. From each block two villages were selected randomly. From each village 15 dairy farmers were selected randomly. From the study, it was observed that the most important constraint faced by the dairy farmers in accessing various information sources was “Inadequate knowledge of farmers” and lest important constraint was “Livestock assistant has lacks of proper knowledge for treatment of animals”. Some other constraints observed by the farmers were, Poor information dissemination system, Non-availability of mass media sources, Negative attitude of extension personnel, Distance from other farmers etc. The study suggests that, training may be organized to extension personnel for improving information dissemination system of the state.

Key words: Constraints, Information. Accessibility, Knowledge, Sources
