A study was conducted with 108 farmers in different district of Punjab with the objectives to ascertain their level of awareness about vermicompost, sources of information used and constraints faced by them in adopting the technology of vermicomposting. Data had been collected randomly. This study revealed that the majority of farmers were having very low level of awareness and usage of vermicompost. Study concludes that social media and other informational sources can be utilized to create awareness in this regard. The major constraints noticed were the non availability of worms in nearby market, lack of money and knowledge about vermicompost preparation. Removing all these constraints need organized efforts from all government and non government agencies.
