                         agricultural yield, production and crop condition. In tropical 
                         areas, crop dynamics are complex due to multiple agricultural 
                         practices such as irrigation, non-tillage, crop rotation and 
                         multiple harvest per year. Spatial and temporal information can 
                         improve the performance in land-cover and crop type classification 
                         tasks. In this context Deep Learning (DL) have emerged as a 
                         powerful state-of-the-art technique in the RS community. This work 
                         presents a comparative analysis of traditional and DL (supervised 
                         and unsupervised) approaches for crop classification on sequences 
                         of multitemporal optical and SAR images. Three different 
                         approaches are compared: the image stacking approach, which is 
                         used as baseline, and two DL based approaches using Autoencoders 
                         (AEs) and Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs). Experiments were 
                         carried out in two datasets from two different municipalities in 
                         Brazil, Ipu\~{a} in S\~{a}o Paulo state and Campo Verde in Mato 
                         Grosso state. It is shown that CNN and AE outperformed the 
                         traditional approach based on image stacking in terms of Overall 
                         Accuracy and Class Accuracy.",
