In Niger, the continuous land degradation due to drought and anthropogenic actions is one of the major cause of decline in soil fertility and consequently in agricultural production. Therefore, this study was conducted in Magami village in order to assess the impacts of natural regeneration on soil texture, electrical conductivity, aluminum and organic carbon. Four agro systems were compared: (1) field without natural regeneration (CF); (2) field with 3 years natural regeneration (FY); (3) field with 10 years natural regeneration (FT) and (4) field with 15 years natural regeneration (FM). The results showed a significantly higher soil quality in the fields with natural regeneration compared to the control field. A relatively increase of soils quality parameters with age of practice of natural regeneration.
