The present study was carried out to assess the knowledge and adoption level of camel owners about scientific management practices in arid zone of Rajasthan. Study also documented the constraints perceived by camel owners during camel management and marketing practices. Two districts, Bikaner and Jaisalmer were purposively selected on the basis of camel population. One tehsil from each district was selected purposively on the basis of numbers of camels. From each tehsil 4 villages were selected randomly. Total 15 camel owners were selected randomly from each selected village thus, making sample size of 120 respondents.
