A study was conducted with 120 randomly selected farmers in from the Saharsa district of Bihar state. The study revealed that majority of the farmers (70.83%) had medium level of knowledge and about (75%) had favourable attitude towards vermicompost technology. The major constraints noticed were inadequate training facility, lack of organized market, lack of extension contact, lack of government support, lack of scientific knowledge, lack of relevant literatures and attack of insect. Removing these constraints need organized efforts from all stakeholders namely; farmers, government global administration and research institute and non-government organization. There is great’s need of creating awareness and ensuring active participation.
