Revisitant les facteurs affectant l’utilisation des Tics sur l’information relative aux intrants agricoles par les paysans dans les pays en voie de développement

Macire KANTE, Christopher Chepken, Robert Oboko


Malgré une exposition des paysans aux Tics sur l’information de production agricole, la contribution de ceux-ci dans ce domaine n’est encore satisfaisante. Par conséquent, une etude a été menée pour informer notre audience sur les facteurs affectant l’utilisation de ces Tics par une révision des Tics et les articles publiés sur ces Tics en utilisant la Théorie Ancrée. Les facteurs avantage relatif, compatibilité, simplicité, l’influence sociale, observabilité, alphabétisation, savoir-faire Tics et qualité de l’information affectent positivement l’utilisation de ces Tics tandis que et le cout excessif des Tics affectent négativement leurs utilisations.
