  • Product Description

The reality of the problem of poor state of agricultural information management in Nigeria necessitated the need to study situations of the farmers, agricultural extension agents and researchers in the country. The extent to which ICTs are used by these stakeholders to advance agricultural practices in Nigeria was investigated. Three sets of structured questionnaire were used to elicit information from the different categories of respondents. Data were collected on perception of the use of ICTs, access, availability, level of use and knowledge of ICTs, farmers’ information sources, needs and use of available ICTs and willingness to use digital ICTs. Descriptive statistics, knowledge index and logit regression model were used to analyse the data collected. All tests were carried out at p = 0.05. The disparity in the available ICT formats to agricultural researchers, extensionists and farmers present a serious challenge to agricultural information management in Nigeria. Multiplicity of information sources predisposed farmers to use ICTs. Availability and accessibility were major determinants of Information and Communication Technologies used by researchers and extensionists.
