Abstract: Pulse is considered as main source of vegetable protein and also called as poor men meat. But in relation to the cultivation practice of pulse, the growers face lots of problems which are highlighted in the present study. The study conducted in four villages in Northern part of West Bengal. Randomly 100 respondents were selected for this study. An interview schedule was prepared to collect the data. Collected data were analyzed through statistical tools. The study revealed that in the districts, lack of infrastructural facility and good seeds at the time of sowing are the main infrastructural constraints. High cost of labour is a socio-economic constraint and proper knowledge about quality seeds is institutional constraint and lack of support price is a policy constraint which creates hindrances to the growers in pulse production. Therefore, the existing line departments are required to take proper initiative for mitigating various constraints faced by the pulse growers.
