Soil structure can be evaluated and assessed a number of ways; therefore, sometimes it is very difficult to compare these results. The aim of this study was to examine the water repellency of soil structure in different soils two different ways: 1. Baksheev method and 2. using the AS 200 device. Obtained results showed large differences in size fractions of water stable aggregates dependent on method or device of determination. If we only assessed the vulnerability of soil structure, the results are comparable regardless of what method or device was used.

Keywords: soil structure, water stable aggregates, vulnerability of soil structure
