  • Product Description

Availability of information on improved technologies is an important ingredient for agricultural development. However, Nigerian women farmers have low access to technological information. The use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) among these women in accessing information on improved agricultural practices has not been adequately explored. Use of ICTs among women farmers in north-eastern Nigeria was assessed in this study. Findings revealed that, Women farmers used ICTs to access information on fertiliser sources and application, credits, grants and loans, child care and nutrition, market prices and location, crop pests; diseases and control. Radio, television and mobile phone were the most used ICTs. Seclusion status, education, Social participation, awareness, cosmopoliteness and residence location had likelihood of increasing the use of ICTs. Women farmers in north-eastern Nigeria had high awareness of ICTs and used them in accessing agricultural and other livelihood information. However, the unfavourable attitude and low awareness and use of new ICTs need to be addressed to increase the potential to deliver agricultural information to women farmers.
