This study investigates the impact of ICTs on agricultural development in Alice rural community, Eastern Cape. South Africa. The rationale for carrying out the study, has to do with the limited access to ICTs by farmers residing in this rural community, which in turn affects their productivity and increase in the volume of agricultural production. The core argument for the study is that the use of ICTs has positive spinoffs on agricultural development which leads to improvement in the quality and quantity of agricultural production. Conversely lack of access to ICTs can result in inability to enhance agricultural productivity in rural areas such as Alice. Furthermore, it is argued herein that technological information devices such as ICTs are essential communication and information tools; and as such, should be regarded as useful communication media for disseminating relevant agricultural information to farmers residing in rural communities.
