Cooperative multi-agent systems (MAS) are ones in which several agents attempt, through their interaction, to jointly solve tasks or to maximize utility. Due to the interactions among the agents, multi-agent problem complexity can rise rapidly with the number of agents or their behavioral sophistication. This paper propose a kind of agent-based cooperation design thought and the realization for wheat simulation model, hangs together the growth model and knowledge model of wheat, realize organic coupling and integration between the function of forecast and decision-making.
