Abstract

This paper discusses the access and utilization of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for supporting farmers' daily life, including agricultural activities, in the rural area of Yogyakarta Indonesia. Differences in the geographical condition, socio-economic characteristics, literacy rate and the capability of farmers to access and utilize ICTs for agricultural activities were considered as important factors. A descriptive method was implemented using a mixed method. The results show that farmers have used electronic media, such as televisions, radios and mobile phones, to obtain agricultural information. The use of the internet via a mobile mobile phone or smartphone is relatively new among farmers in the coastal-marginal farming area who intensively engage in the cultivation of commercial horticultural crops, and the internet is mainly used to obtain market information. Generally, information related to agricultural activities accessed through ICTs by farmers was still dominated by technological innovation pertaining to production aspects.
