Abstract: This paper presents a novel approach for the diagnoses of insect pests that can harm wheat crops in Egypt. ESWYP is a system that enables the farmer to classify insect diseases among 12 types. Diagnose of the insect pests is a complex and sensitive task, and can only be performed by an expert of the agriculture sciences. ESWYP expert system is designed to imitate the agricultural experts for disease diagnoses, and to enable a computer to behave like an agricultural expert to discriminate the type of pests began to affect the wheat crops and then advice the best treatment for it. This paper presents the relationship and mapping of the expert system technology onto agricultural sciences, and technicalities involved in designing of the ESWYP expert system. The expert system also provides a reasoning facility that enables the user to look into the diagnoses and treatment details.
