Also records of farmer are collected manually using printable forms and complaints are tabled through extension workers. The challenges with these systems are unrelated of information deliver, the system does not capture all farmers, and communication is one way.  The main objective of this paper is to implement the Algorithms for Agricultural Automated Information System for Computer Based Information system in Agricultural sector in Nigeria. The system was developed using Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), Hypertext Preprocessor (PhP), Java scripting Language, My SQL Server, WAMP server, cascading sheet, notepad and web browser.  These results show that the problem of a lack of appropriate and easily accessible agricultural information can be solved using a system.
