The objective of this paper is to review existing remote sensing based models (i.e. CASA, GLO-PEM, VPM, C-Fix, TURC, EC-LUE, VI, TG, 3-PGS and MOD17) that use light use efficiency (LUE) logic, and subsequently to evaluate the suitability of these models for estimating oil palm productivity. This paper also highlights the limitation of current remote sensing based models for estimating oil palm productivity. From the review of existing literature, it is clear that the existing remote sensing based models need to be modified in terms of meteorological inputs, maximum LUE and environmental constraints in order to improve the estimation of oil palm productivity.
