Abstract : Monitoring land use and land cover and more particularly irrigated cropland dynamics is of great importance for water resources management and land use planning. The objective of this study was to evaluate the combined use of multi-temporal optical and radar data with a high spatial resolution in order to improve the precision of irrigated crop identification by taking into account information on crop phenological stages. SAR and optical parameters were derived from timeseries of seven quad-pol RADARSAT-2 and four Landsat-8 images which were acquired on the Berambadi catchment, South India, during the monsoon crop season at the growth stages of turmeric crop. To select the best parameter to discriminate turmeric crops, an analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was applied on all the time-series parameters and the most discriminant ones were classified using the Support Vector Machine (SVM) technique. Results show that in absence of optical images, polarimetric parameters derived from SAR time-series can be used for the turmeric area estimates and that the combined use of SAR and optical parameters can improve the classification accuracy to identify turmeric.
