The integrated management of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) diseases play a key role in guaranteeing the high quality and security of cucumber production in greenhouse, moreover, the early warning of cucumber diseases is the chief precondition for IPM (Integrated Pest Management). This paper describes an attempt to develop an early warning system for cucumber diseases in greenhouse. By analysing plant disease epidemiology and early warning theory, the conceptual model of early warning on cucumber disease of greenhouse is developed. The data collection, data transfer system, database system, forecast system, warning system, and so on are integrated and an early warning system for cucumber diseases in greenhouse has been designed.
