Abstract

OLADELE, O. I. Effect of Information Communication Technology (ICT) on agricultural information access among extension officers in North West Province South Africa. S Afr. Jnl. Agric. Ext. [online]. 2015, vol.43, n.2, pp.30-41. ISSN 2413-3221.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2413-3221/2015/v43n2a344.

This study determined the effect of Information Communication Technology (ICT) on agricultural information access among extension officers in North West Province South Africa. A simple random sampling technique was used to select 169 officers from which data were collected with structured and face validated questionnaire. Fourteen statements were perceived by officers as having an effect on improving information access. Significant determinants of the effect of ICT on information access were education (t= 2.61, p = 0.11); constraints to ICT tools (t= 2.60, p = .010), use of ICT tools (t = 4.67, p = .000) and e-readiness (t= -3.01, p =.003).

Keywords : Information Communication Technology; information access; extension officers; agricultural information.
