Agriculture is the principal source of income in many developing countries, and raising productivity in this sector has the potential to raise farm revenue and alleviate rural poverty. This study sought to establish a baseline of information about agriculture performance and rural development indicators in the province of Cagayan. This inquiry is being carried out using a survey technique in order to obtain information from the participants. The information for the study was gathered through the use of questionnaires. Participants in the research were four hundred (400) farmers from the province of Cagayan. In order to analyze, the data was put into SPSS, which included the usage of percentages, means, and standard deviation. Results reveal that people in their mid-adult years made up the majority of those who answered the survey questions. Despite the fact that both sexes are involved in agriculture in the area, males account for a greater proportion of it. A significant proportion of respondents cite government officials and staff as their primary sources of information. While new technologies are still minor information sources, the development of ICTs to facilitate information conveyance is promoted to meet the demands of a quickly changing society.
