Abstract: ICTs play a very crucial role in disseminating the timely farm information and aids in farm-management decisions. The study was conducted in the year 2017-18 in Shivamogga and Chikkamagaluru districts of Karnataka state. Simple random sampling technique was employed to collect the data from the 120 samples. The data was collected with the help of structured interview schedule. It was found that more than half (60.00%) of the ICT tool user farmers inferred that it has saved time in obtaining agricultural information. Further, 73.30 percent of What’s app users used less than 2 ICT sources of information. 76.70 percent of the KMAS user farmers used 2-3 ICT sources to obtain agricultural information. An insight into information sharing behaviour of ICT tool user farmers reveals that about 84.17 percent of the farmers regularly shared the information with friends, followed by 70.80 percent of the respondents occasionally shared the information with their family and peer group peoples.
