Information sources are the various meansÂ by which a piece of information is recorded for use byÂ an individual. It is how a person is informed aboutÂ something or knowledge is availed to someone or aÂ group of people. Patel et al., (1993) have suggestedÂ that in a developing country like India, disseminationÂ of agricultural information and improved technologyÂ through the use of latest communication technology canÂ play a great role in agricultural development.Â Knowledge derived from formal research, or developedÂ in other localities, can stimulate new thinking andÂ practices (Figueroa et al., 2002). So it is evident thatÂ proper dissemination of information is highly necessaryÂ for agriculture development.
