summary Today, ICT has become one of the most important enabling forces for development. Previous studies have recognized the importance of the adoption processes. However they fail to define the principles and theory required in order to manage them successfully. Most studies focus on evaluating critical adoption success factors while broadly discussing the failure to adopt information technology. This paper is a focused attempt to contribute to a better understanding of adoption success factors and adoption problems of ICT in agriculture. It also highlights e-Agriculture as an emerging field focusing on the enhancement of agricultural and rural development through improved information and communication processes. The paper concludes that “End Users” are the key factor in defining the needs and critical success factors for ICT development and implementation.
