Evaluation of constraints in use of electronic agricultural information resources at selected institutions of Higher Learning in Kenya

Abstract: 
This study aims at identifying the constraints in use of agricultural electronic resources in academic institutions and their contributions to development in agriculture. Limited access to agricultural e-resources has led to poor research output and at times duplication of efforts in agricultural and related sciences and scanty publication and dissemination.
Cette étude vise à identifier les contraintes dans l’utilisation des ressources électroniques agricoles dans les établissements universitaires et leur contribution au développement de l’agriculture. L’accès limité aux ressources électroniques agricoles a conduit aux résultats de recherche pauvre et au dédoublement dans les sciences agricoles et connexes, et la publication et la diffusion sont rares.
