Online data submission and retrieval system for coordinated research trials in food legumes has been developed with an aim to reduce the time and cost in collection, compilation, data analysis, retrieval and report generation. At the first instance, efforts were made to use plant breeding data as it covers more than 60% of total trials. The system has been developed using ASP.NET with C# as the front-end and SQL Server 2005 as back-end. This system has three online functional modules viz., Data Entry and Submission Module, Data Analysis Module and Report Generation Module. The system is designed to be user-friendly and is completely menu-driven with options for assigning login IDs and passwords. It can be accessed efficiently through URL: http://www.aicrpmullarp.res.in. The complete system has been presented, tested and validated during different Group Meets of AICRP on MULLaRP. The implemented system being satisfactorily used by the centres of AICRP on MULLaRP since last one year and has significantly reduced the manpower and processing time required for compilation, data analysis and preparation of annual report. The present article describes the design and implementation of on-line data submission and retrieval system for coordinated research trials in food legumes.
