The analysis of the use of computer programmes supporting running an agricultural farm by farmers was carried out. The research was carried out in 2012 in the form of a direct survey of owners of 54 agricultural farms located in Łomżyński province in Podlaskie voivodeship. A survey questionnaire, which consisted of three parts was a research instrument. The first part concerned information on the farm owner, the second on a farm, while the third part of the questionnaire comprised questions on specialists computer programmes, which farmers use in their farms. Although, majority of respondents have heard of specialists computer programmes for agriculture, only 27% of them use such programmes in their farms. Programmes supporting plant production (55%), animal production (16%) and accounting programmes (27%) are the most frequently used computer programmes. As much as 82% of the questioned farmers proved, that they were influenced by the production profile of their farms while selecting a computer programme.
