The use of information and communication technology (ICT) in agriculture (cyber extension) can accelerate the process of innovation by farmers. But in developing countries its success depends on its supporting factor. This paper reviews a study that aims to analyze the availability of supporting environmental factors in the use of cyber extensions and their relation to communication behavior of horticultural farmers in accessing ICT-based information sources. The research design used is quantitative research. The research was conducted in Lampung Selatan and Metro municipalities. The study was conducted in July 2017 to November 2017. The study population is farmers of food crops and horticulture. A sample of 207 people was taken at random. Data were analyzed descriptively and inferentially with Rank Spearman Test. As a result, there is no significant relationship between supporting environmental factors and communication behavior of horticultural farmers. Conversely there is a significant relationship between the level of availability of information access facilities and the level of availability of conventional information sources in accordance with access to agricultural information based on ICT. The authors describe the implications of this research, particularly on the policy of cyber extension for agriculture. Keywords: cyber extension, support factor, communication behavior, information access, horticulture
