The advent of multi-agent systems has brought together many disciplines and given us a new way to look at intelligent, distributed systems. However, traditional ways of thinking about and designing software do not fit the multiagent paradigm. Based on agent theory, technology research and multi-agent environment, this paper describes agent oriented programming software development method - MaSE and analyzed wheat growth model. Through requirement analysis, system design and system modeling, this paper builds manage agent, fertilize agent, irrigate agent, weather agent, soil agent, growth agent and simulation agent and develops wheat growth multi-agent system.
