Nwogu I. Lucky, Uzokwe Chuka Christian, Olaifa Taye Paul

The use of information services by farmers is expedient to collaborate agricultural development in Nigeria. These farmers must be informed about current agricultural developments and research. This study examines the extent to which farmers in the region are provided with adequate information to enhance agricultural development. The study investigates the use of information services by registered farmers among agricultural research institutes in North Central zone of Nigeria. The survey method was used for the study and a total of 121 respondents comprising registered farmers in agricultural research institutes in the zone were used for the study. Findings from the data collected showed that majority of the registered farmers were University degree holders. The research revealed that the extent at which farmers in the zone use information services was shoddy; majority of the farmers were either not satisfied with information services provided; or shortened by irregular access and inadequate provision of some information services. The concluding part of the research gave recommendations on how farmers in the zone should be provided with adequate information to enhance their productivity; which will in-turn improve agricultural development in Nigeria.
