The Study focuses on the significance of institutional limitations in driving agricultural diversification in economically disadvantaged regions. Through primary data collected via personal interviews with selected farmers in Sitapur district of Uttar Pradesh, the study identifies key constraints affecting diversification efforts. These constraints include the absence of modern agricultural skills, limited access to financial services, and inadequate marketing facilities. The authors suggest that these factors play a pivotal role in hindering diversification. They propose that providing institutional support, such as facilitating access to formal financial sources and establishing farmer organizations, could be instrumental in promoting agricultural diversification. By addressing these constraints, the study indicates that diversification could be fostered, subsequently reducing risks to farmers' livelihoods.
