Soil saturated hydraulic conductivity (Ks) is an important soil physical property, especially for determining infiltration rate, irrigation practice, drainage design, run off, deep percolation, groundwater recharge and in simulating leaching and other agricultural and hydrological processes. Several laboratory and field methods can be used to determine Ks. Unfortunately, laboratory and field determinations are usually time consuming, expensive and labour intensive. This study attempts to simplify the determination of Ks. The main objectives of this study were to seek a simplified method for determining Ks values based on PTF and estimate DP losses in paddy field based on the dominant Ks of the soil profile.
