When the Dsmax values recorded for the soil samples studied were compared with the Dsmax when it had been assessed by the equation for the clay levels (MARCOLIN & KLEIN, 2011) (Figure 1e), the lines revealed similar tendencies, the difference being that the maximum density values were less; in fact, they were lower than those reported by the Dsmaxpedo transfer equation as a function of the clay content.
