Scholarcy highlights

  • Bulk density and penetration resistance were positively related to the σp
  • In north-eastern Brazil, sugarcane is mostly explored in coastal tablelands, where the soil has a particular feature that is called the “cohesive character”
  • This study aimed to analyse the relationship between physical properties of the soil and the preconsolidation pressure variation in cohesive soil
  • Higher σp values are associated with higher values of bulk density, soil penetration resistance, clay content, liquid limit and plastic limit, and smaller values are linked to an increase in water content and organic carbon
