Due to inadequate personnel, information communication technologies (JCTs) have become an attractive option for delivery of extension information. This study examined awareness and use of ICTs by farmers in Oyo State, Nigeria. A total of 192 farmers were interviewed. Results indicate that most farmers had no formal education and small farm holdings. Awareness of older JeTs like radio and television was more prevalent among farmers as compared with newer JeTs such as Jnternet and cable television. However, use of modern JeTs like mobile phones and cable television was greater than that for older technologies such as fax machines. Parmerst were constrained in JeT use by prohibitive cost and service failure. The Nigerian government should encourage a liberal policy for affordable prices for modern JeT products, especially mobile telephones.
