Abstract: The plants Calliandra calothrysus Meisn and Mucuna pruriens (L.) DC. are nitrogen (N) fixing plants and this research aims to measure how planting of them can affect total N, total organic carbon (TOC) and pH levels in Talasiga and Fallow soils in Kadavu, Fiji. The two targeted areas were from the Yavusa (clan) Suesue within the district of Sanima in Kadavu. The research made use of destructive sampling with three treatments replicated seven times. Soil sampled were taken from two depths per plot (D1= 0-15cm and D2= 15-30cm) before and after planting C. calothrysus and M. pruriens in Talasiga and Fallow area.
