A mathematical proof of the reciprocity relation for reflection and transmission of radiation by plane-parallel scattering media like crop canopies is presented. First, the proof is based on a radiation model for crop canopies, and then the proof is generalized. Matrix methods are used, leading to the use of tensors in the general case. The conditions for the validity of the reciprocity relation are discussed.
