Abstract

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) remote sensing techniques play a significant role in modern agricultural crop monitoring by relating the plant structure (height, biomass, yield and growth-stage) to the backscattering behavior of the vegetative canopy. The current trend in crop monitoring is towards precision agriculture, which needs detailed morphology information. By predicting the physical structure, one can just determine the under and overgrowth conditions.
