The present paper brings an outline of the methodology and chosen results of an extensive ICT development survey in agricultural enterprises that was carried out in the second quarter of 2010 in the whole Czech Republic. The survey was aimed primarily at the analysis of internet connectivity development in rural areas (i.e. areas where the majority of enterprises operates), at the technical and program equipment and last but not least at the present state and current trends in ICT use. This follow-up survey prosecutes the studies that were administered within the last two years (2009 in particular). In comparison with previous years, it comprises two brand new domains (e.g. social networks and their use, program equipment used in different segments of animal production, crop production and economy). The research was prepared, carried out and administred by the Department of Information Technologies in cooperation with the Information and Consulting Center of the Faculty of Economics and Management of the Czech University of Life Sciences.
