Abstract: The paper describes the Brazilian farmer access to some tools of information technology - computer and internet. For this purpose, the methodology includes: a) a literature review of studies that link the national agricultural duality with respect to the use of innovations, b) analysis of Census data 2006 IBGE, the use of these instruments by producers. The following variables were analyzed, making comparisons between those with and those without computer and Internet access: educational level of the person who runs the establishment, towards the establishment, groups of economic activity, being regarded as its regional distribution. The results indicate that at the time of the Census, only 4.54 % of agricultural establishments in the country had computer and less than 1.87 % had Internet access. The use of these tools was concentrated in establishments located in the southern and southeastern regions, observing, moreover, a strong concentration towards producers with higher levels of education and the landowners. The findings indicate that the heterogeneity of Brazilian agriculture is also manifested in terms of access to tools of information technology. It is essential to expand the use of these technologies by farmers as one of the conditions to take advantage of the benefits of its application in the field.
