Abstract:

ICT in agriculture is an emerging field focusing on the enhancement of agricultural and rural development in India. It involves application of innovative ways to use Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) in the rural domain. The role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVKs) and research institutions is becoming increasingly prominent because of the potential value of such technologies. ICTs can be used to increase effectiveness and efficiency of extension professional/scientists in KVK. So, in this era of information revolution, the KVK Scientists should be encouraged to use ICTs for different extension activities and field work. In this context a research study was undertaken for 304 scientists working in different KVKs in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. The findings of the study indicate that about half (51.98%) of the respondents possessed medium level of availability of ICTs, while majority (56.93%) of the KVK Scientists possessed medium to high level of accessibility of ICTs.
