The method of moments/Monte Carlo technique is used to numerically compute the Mueller matrix for radar backscattering from stem-cut cluster sections of a harvested farm field, and a semi-empirical surface scattering model is employed for estimating the radar backscatter of a rough soil surface. The full-wave numerical technique and the surface scattering model are combined to compute the Mueller matrix and consequently the backscattering coefficients of a harvest farm field. This hybrid technique is verified comparing the numerical computations with the experimental measurements for the backscattering coefficients of harvested rice fields.
