Information technology can be defined as the application of technologies to enhance information transfer and delivery. All information technologies have the potential to increase access to information. Decreased access time for information is a key factor. These technologies can be used to enhance economic activity in the province, as well as assist research and extension workers in agriculture to not only re-engineer how information is packaged and delivered but to enhance productivity during budget restraint and downsizing. This will also impact job descriptions as departments focus on future opportunities. Opportunities for information technology projects in agriculture are discussed.
