Abstract:

An exploratory study was conducted in Jaipur district of Rajasthan to find out the constraints perceived by livestock farmers in use of Information and Communication Technology (ICTs) and their possible solutions to overcome these constraints. A total of 120 respondents were randomly selected for the study. Data were collected through structured interview schedule and analysed through different statistical tools. The study revealed that high cost of repairing ICTs (66.67%), lack of training and practical exposure towards ICTs (60.00%) and low ICT literacy (58.33%) were found to be ‘most serious constraints’ while lack of awareness of benefits of ICTs (56.67%), lack of skills in handling ICTs (50.83%), poor finance and erratic power supply (44.17% each) perceived as ‘serious constraints’. Low network connectivity (44.17%), unavailability of different ICT tools (32.50%) considered as ‘less serious constraints’ and Negative attitude towards ICTs was perceived as ‘not a constraint’ by most of the livestock farmers. Study on possible solutions shows that a great majority of the livestock farmers were in agreement with the possible solutions like subsidy in the procurement of ICT equipments (98.33%), provision of finance facilities (92.50%), setting up of low cost repairing centres in villages (90.83%) and confidence build up through trainings and practical exposure to ICTs (90.00%).
