 ABSTRACT

The study attempts to investigate the level of awareness, access and effectiveness of information and communication technology (JCT) tools among arable crop farmers in Ekiti State, Nigeria. Data were gathered through a questionnaire scheduled on a total of 90 arable crop farmers. The data were analysed using frequency, mean, standard deviation, correlation coefficient and independent sampled t-test. The result revealed that, the mean age of the respondents was 50.5 years and mean years of farming experience of 37.3 years. Radio, television, telephone, were mostly used. These JCT tools were moderately effective to arable crop production in the study area. . Based on the result of independent sampled t-test, there were significant differences in the mean scores in access and usage ICTs. Sequel to the findings of the study, it was recommended that, the extension institutions in Nigeria should concentrate their effort on agricultural information delivery through these ICT facilities accessible to arable crop farmers in order to improved arable production in the study area.

Key words: Information and communication technology, effectiveness, arable farmers, input delivery, Nigeria.
