The physical attributes of the soils cultivated in the western region of Bahia were determined in order to analyze if the recharge process of the Urucuia Aquifer System could be compromised by soil compaction in the recharge areas, due to the management adopted by the farmers. In general, the longer the time without soil mobilization, the higher the soil density values become and the smaller the soil density values become, indicating that the non-mobilization of the soil favors its compaction, making it necessary to use conservation practices to reduce this effect.
