Accurate estimation of crop biophysical and biochemical parameters during crop growing seasons is essential for improving site-specific management and yield estimation. The potential ability of fully polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data in estimating above-ground biomass of oilseed rape was investigated in this study.  This study provides guidelines for in-season monitoring of crop growth parameters with SAR data, which further improves crop monitoring capability in adverse weather conditions.
