The integrated management of Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) for cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) plays a key role in guaranteeing the high quality and safety of cucumber production. This paper describes an attempt to develop a web-based GAP management information system for cucumber. Through applying the system methodology and mathematical modeling technique to analyzing the dynamic relationships between control point of GAP and produce process of cucumber, self-assessments algorithm was established. Based on the algorithm, Web-based GAP management information system for cucumber (Cucumber-GAPS) with the functions of data manage, criterion query, GAP self-check, model manage and so on was designed with the web structure of Browse/Server, and it has been applied successfully in China.
