Soils under no-tillage (NT) and a moldboard plow tillage system (MT) were exposed to a field rainfall simulation to determine the soil poorly crystalline iron release during interrill erosion. Two different soils (Calloway silt and Maury silt loam) were exposed to different kinetic energy wettings to evaluate the temporal clay/silt sized release, the variation of the enrichment ratio for poorly crystalline iron (ERFe) and the total poorly crystalline iron delivered (TID). The clay/silt sized particles release was continuous and independent of soil texture. It is highlighted that : Temporal iron enrichment of clay/silt-sized particles depends on water submergence; Iron extreme values depend on new sources of iron inside soil aggregates; Soil cover cannot avoid soil iron loses as determined by enrichment ratio of particles
