summary ICT adoption remains considerably short of farmers’ and extension workers’ uptake. This study attempts to identify the reasons and constraints explaining this problem in Adamawa State, Nigeria where the bulk of Nigeria’s farming activities take place. The main impediments to ICT adoption cited were lack of tailored ICT applications, their increased sophistication which imposes enhanced human capital requirements, their lack of synchronization with production, market and environment dictates, and the essential ongoing farmer and extension training necessitated. These constraints and other ICT adoption issues were appreciated in the questionnaires as a public concern. Public funding of Information Technology services for farmers was distinctly justified. These and additional insights gleaned from the questionnaire will hopefully alleviate current ICT adoption constraints, guide relevant ICT policy formulation and development priorities.
