Abstract:

ICT as an indispensable tool for information dissemination cuts across every field of knowledge. However the use of ICT poses a great challenge to the extension worker confronted with the burden of disseminating agricultural information to rural farmers because of their high level of illiteracy and the low level of deployment of ICT. The present study is an effort aimed at assessing the level of effort made by researcher at IAR as a foremost Agricultural institution in passing on farm information to farmers using ICT channels. It involved engaging farmers and researchers alike through oral interview in an impact assessment with a view to devising better means of disseminating agricultural information to rural farmers. The finding shows the low level deployment of ICT in information dissemination in this very important segment of the economy and as such leaves a lot of room for improvement.
