An alternative method that overcomes these shortcomings is the use of pedotransfer functions (PTFs) to predict [theta] for different [PSI]m values according to other physical attributes, such as the bulk density (BD), total porosity (TP), macroporosity (Ma), microporosity (Mi), and textural classes (Machado et al.
