Today, information and communications technologies (ICTs) are present in all sectors, and the agricultural sector is no exception. Access to information is important for gaining knowledge and making better decisions. Several factors determine the adoption of ICTs in the agricultural sector. This article presents the literature review on the factors that condition the adoption of ICTs in the agricultural sector. A total of 17 scientific articles were reviewed and analyzed. The results of the review show that some factors mentioned in the literature are education, ICT availability, age of farmers, subjective norm, and farm size. The models that explain the technology acceptance used in the studies were technological acceptance model (TAM) and unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT) and theory that explains human behavior such as theory of planned behavior (TPB). In future adoption model proposals, the factors, models, and theory can be taken into account.
