A web-based prediction system for wheat stripe rust was developed based on B/S (Browser/Server) mode in this study. Some existing prediction models of wheat stripe rust were collected, analyzed and then stored in SQL Server 2005 database according to certain rules. All these models could be called through this web-based system and used to predict wheat(More)
