Despite the fact that information and communication technologies (ICTs) have been proposed as a means to improve extension delivery in Nigeria, very little has been done to identify the ICT training need of agricultural extension agents. The study examined the ICT training need of agricultural extension agents in Bayelsa and Rivers States of Nigeria. The study revealed that hardware, software and World wide web were not frequently used for extension activities. There were differences in ICT training need for hardware, word-processing, statistical and presentation software, World wide web, social media and electronic mail according to State, sex, income, specialty of EAs, location of operational area, educational qualification, age and experience of extension agents.
