The launch of ESA’s Sentinel-1 mission heralded a new era in radar remote sensing for agriculture. The availability of open, global, SAR data at unprecedented spatial and temporal resolution offers new opportunities for agricultural applications.
The suitability of radar data for crop classification, crop monitoring and soil moisture estimation has been demonstrated using spaceborne, airborne and ground-based sensors. The availability of data from new missions, such as Sentinel-1, TerraSAR-X, Radarsat2, SAOCOM, and COSMO SkyMed, has stimulated a transition from research to operational use.
This Special Issue aims to present state-of-the-art research in radar remote sensing for agricultural applications. Contributions are invited from across the spectrum of radar remote sensing for agriculture including but not limited to new sensors, new processing techniques, scattering theory, retrieval approaches, field experiments and airborne campaigns, data fusion and assimilation. New insights from the fields of scatterometry, SAR, PolSAR, PolInSAR and radar tomography are welcome.
Contributions relating to operational use of radar observations for decision-making, and the generation of services provided to farmers, food producers and other stakeholders in agricultural production are particularly welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Remote Sensing is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
