The success of integrating information and communication technologies into the educational system depends largely on the skills and knowledge of teachers. The study examined the availability of information and communication technology in secondary schools, knowledge of information and communication technology possessed by agricultural science teachers, utilization of information and communication technology by agricultural science teachers for teaching-learning and the challenges posed by information and communication technology to agricultural science teachers. Four research questions were structured and two hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. A survey research design was adopted for the study. A total of 420 Agricultural science teachers were used to obtain information. A checklist and structured questionnaire with five points rating scale were used for data collection. The reliability coefficient of the instrument was established using Cronbach Alpha with a value of 0.83. Mean and Standard deviation were used for the data analysis. The results revealed that information and communication technology were not utilized for teaching learning in secondary schools. It was recommended that training of agricultural science teacher should be reviewed to emphasize knowledge and skills related to the use of information and communication technologies for teaching and learning of agricultural sciences in secondary schools.
