Very meagre (3.30 %) portion of the respondents had high level of perceived effectiveness of ICT tools in agriculture. In particular over whelming majority (96.70 %) of the respondents perceived that ICT tools reduce the cost of transportation in acquiring information. Vast majority (95.80 %) of the respondents quoted that ICT tools help to store and retrieve information any number of times.
