Multiple cropping index (MCI) is a very important indicator in crop production and agricultural intensification, which represents the utilizing degree of agriculture resources at time scale and the effective utilization situation of arable land. The objective of this paper is monitoring multiple cropping index of Henan province of China according to the time series of MODIS (Moderate-Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) EVI (Enhanced Vegetation Index) after Savitzky-Golay filter processing from the year 2006 to 2011.The results revealed that this method could provide an effective way to monitor multiple cropping index, and the method of no additional authentication data is independent and reliable. The result was accurate and stable, the slope of linear regression of the multiple cropping index between the statistical results and the remote sensing results was 1.0136 (R2=0.779). The precision of sample areas validation was 97.91%. Suggesting that the time series MODIS-EVI which after Savitzky-Golay filtering processed, could provide an effective way to extract spatial information of multiple cropping index for management department of agriculture.
