In order to simulate growth and yield of crop in field scale, crop simulation models always require a lot of initial parameters. WebGIS is a powerful tool for obtaining, managing and analyzing spatial data on the Web. With the support of WebGIS, crop models based on web services can be easily run on the web by remote client and provide decision information and measures for crop production. In this paper, a remote crop production management system based on crop models and WebGIS is discussed. After the input variables for the crop model are obtained by WebGIS tool, the model will be run and the database will be updated with the results of the simulation. Spatial analysis and representation of crop model input data and output results can be done effectively on the web. Both the input data for the model and outputs from the model can be displayed on a map.
