Much of the failures of agricultural programmes in Nigeria have been blamed on the weakness and ineffectiveness of the agricultural extension delivery system. Lack of timely information prevents good quality decision and thus lowers the efficiency of production decision among farmers. Information and communication technologies (ICTs) have become the cornerstone of agricultural development in contemporary times. ICTs increase efficiency, productivity and sustainability of agriculture sector which is an important economic sector, since it provides income and food for a large segment of the population in developing countries. ICTs are useful tools in improving linkages between the research and agricultural extension systems. The research was conducted by seasoned scholars to evaluate the effects of ICT use among extension personnel in disseminating agricultural innovations. This masterpiece is a sure guide, companion and a dependable reference to researchers, policy makers, academics as well as students both undergraduates and postgraduates.
