Limiting fragmentation in hadronic collisions is analyzed in the framework of the κ⊥ factorization and the nonlinear Balitsky-Kovchegov equation. Reasonable agreement with the experimental data is obtained. It is concluded that in order to obtain the limiting fragmentation, the factorization in the parton distributions in the target and the projectile is necessary as well as the independence of the parton distributions in the target of the scales in the process.
