An indirect method to estimate the soil erodibility (K-factor) for Brazilian soils with a textural B horizon (similar definitions to the argillic horizon of the US Soil Taxonomy) has been developed but not tested. Samples from the A and B horizons of a dark-red podzolic soil from Patu, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, were submitted to several chemical and physical analyses and its morphological profile description was considered, and the K-factor calculated.
