Radar backscattering sources in vegetation canopies and surface targets were determined. The fundamental questions were, how much of backscattering is due to direct volume backscatter by the canopy, the soil, and indirect backscatter by soil/vegetation, and what are the relative roles in terms of scattering. The results for crops, milo plant, wheat plant, soybean plant, and surface targets are reported.-from STAR, 22(12), 1984
