A generic electromagnetic model for agriculture scenes has been extended and adapted to simulate the X-band SAR response of rice fields during their whole phenological cycle. Simulations of different polarimetric observables have been useful for interpreting time series of dual-pol TerraSAR-X images acquired during 2008 and 2009 over rice fields in Spain at different incidence angles and different polarization channels.
