Abstract: Semi and region of the topic where production of arable crop is said to becoming a problem due to the degradation in the soil conditions some of which are made while few are natural can be ameliorated and improved if a planed agro-forestry practices can be adopted especially when leguminous trees as Faidherbia A .are incorporated.In work which was carried out at the teaching and research from of Audu Bako Collage of Agriculture Danbatta, in which a soil under Albida canopy was compared with the same way for the canopy, shows that organic carbon,nitrogen,Total P and K ware all significantly higher than the site not covered by the tree (F. Albida) canopy with the values of .3433,0463,19.9983,0.4645 and 0.152,0.1833,5.7523,0.1625respectively.
