Information technology is a mix of telecommunications and computers, which is concerned with
storing, processing, updating, sending and receiving of information which is something which
people need for their development and well being. It is the Information technology which has

basically an agricultural country so agriculture methodology in India should incorporate latest
and best industrial practices from all over the world. The new agricultural techniques should be
purchased from foreign and should be implemented in India to achieve the objectives. So for
purchasing and hiring the latest technology the basic element that is required is information. Not
only in field of agriculture but in almost all fields information important because every
development process depends on the availability of right kind of information at right place and at
right time.
