Institutional constraints play a significant role in diversification of agriculture in backward regions of the country. The present study was conducted in Baghpat district of Uttar Pradesh with an objective to examining constraints that affect diversification. Using data from a primary survey in Baghpat, it was found that lack of skill in modern agriculture, poor access to financial services, and lack of marketing facilities played a decisive role in agricultural diversification. Providing institutional support in the form of access to formal sources of finance and making farmers organizations will help in promoting diversification and reducing livelihood risks.

Key words: Agriculture diversification, Constraints and Utter Pradesh.
