New media tools or information communication tools are evolving for the benefit of people and students who are in seek of information. Increase in Agricultural production is constrained by limited land and water availability. Further growth can be achieved only through increase in yield. This gap can be bridged by an effective extension system. Decreasing fund allocation, limited capacities of extension staff, large number of farm families, poor reach to marginal and small farmers, low literacy rate among the farming community are all limitations of the present extension system. In this context – e-extension centre of Tamil Nadu Agricultural University has established a unique portal named TNAU Agritech Portal. The results revealed that 53.00 per cent of respondents had medium level of perception of the portal and equal percentage of respondents fell under both low and high levels (36.66%) utilization pattern of the portal. Majority of the respondents reported web irresponsiveness of portal as a primary constraint in accessing the portal and they also suggested that ICAR question bank, global level market trends and more number of pictures and videos with high clarity can be included.
