    The energy problem is more aggregated since few years. The Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India had undertaken gobar-gas (bio-gas) programmes on large scale. Also provision of subsidy, for construction of gobar-gas (bio-gas) has been introduced. Various institutions and agencies have made their efforts to popularise gobar-gas plant for solving the problem of fuel as well as manure. Inspite of these efforts, the level of adoption of gobar-gas plants is quite uneven in various parts of the state. Also there are constraints or difficulties in adoption of gobar-gas plant. The present study was therefore, conducted to study constraints in adoption of gobar-gas technology in Kaira district of Gujarat State with the following objectives.

(iv) To study the suggestions of the adopters and non-adopters of gobar-gas plant to overcome the constraints. Methodology In the present investigation the population for the study consisted of two categories namely adopters and nonadopters of gohar-gas plant in Kaira district. Stratified multistage random sampling with proportional allocation was followed to select the respondents for this study. In all, 50 adopters of gobar-gas plant were selected for the study who were in proportion to the total number of gobar-gas plant owners in the respective talukas. Likewise, 50 non-adopters from the same village were selected randomly keeping the herd size constant as that of gobar-gas plant owners. The data were collected with the help of personal interview schedule which was specially constructed in accordance with the objectives of the present investigation.
