• ## Soil Erodibility Factor Analysis

Soil Erodibility Factor (K) The soil erodibility factor (K), a measure of the susceptibility of soil to erosion under standard conditions, is a function of the percentage of silt and coarse sand, the soil structure, the permeability of the soil, and the percentage of organic matter. Wischmeier et al. (1971) defined the soil erodibility factor mathematically and Foster et al. (1996) converted the equation into the following SI unit equation: The soil erodibility factor (K) is determined for each soil sample based on analysis of soils in laboratory. The equation (Wischmeier and Smith, 1978) mentinoned is below. K = ((2.17 × 10-4) × (M1.14) × (12-a) + 3.25 × (b - 2) + 2.5 × (c - 3)) × d [5] where M = (percentage of silt and fine sand)…
