Abstract: 
Vegetation has a substantial impact on soil properties and can modify soil chemical and physical properties through different mechanisms. Furthermore, nitrogen fixing plants are able to improve soil fertility by increasing nitrogen. The present study was conducted to investigate the effects of Astragalus cyclophyllon on some chemical properties of soil. To achieve the goal, soil samples under the canopy of Astragalus cyclophyllon and Bromus tomentellus as control plants (non-legume plants) as well as the control soil (where no plant is present) at 0-30 and 30-60 cm depths were taken in a completely randomized design. Then, the chemical properties of soil, including CaCO3, EC, pH, organic carbon, inorganic nitrogen and total nitrogen percentage in soil were measured. Moreover, a criterion plant was analyzed at laboratory scale to evaluate the effects of the target plant on the amount of total nitrogen, protein and production of understory plants. The results indicated that the amount of inorganic nitrogen, total nitrogen percentage and organic carbon in 0-30 cm soil depth was significantly different from other treatments (P<0. 05). This is also the case with the production, nitrogen and protein percentage of the criterion plant cultivated on the sampled soils from 0-30 cm depth under the canopy of Astragalus cyclophyllon. These factors have an inverse relationship with soil depth. EC and pH levels of soil under the canopy of Astragalus cyclophyllon were less than those of bare soil (control).
