In order to study the training needs of the farm women and their constraints, 120 farm women were selected randomly from Raigad district of konkan region. The special designed schedule was used for collection of data. The data was collected for the year 2009. It is rightly said that grain saved is grain produced. There is problem of feeding ever increasing human population cannot be solved by only increasing food production, but the first logical step to solve it, would be to prevent storage losses and build up reserves scientifically The qualitative data were quantified using suitable statistical tools. 55.00 per cent of the farm women are of opinion that training were needed more in respect of use of fumigants at stored place followed by use of preventive measures at stored place(46.67 per cent) identification of stored grain pest, its nature of damage and control measures(40.00 per cent). Major constraints faced by the respondents in food grain storage practices were, high cost of improved storage structure (85.00 per cent), lack of knowledge on identification of stored grain pest (69.16 per cent), unavailability of different storage structures (56.66 per cent). it is revealed that two third (66.67 percent) of the farm women felt that training was needed medium extent to them while 10.00 per cent of them felt training was highly needed and 23.33 per cent felt low intensity of training need.
