Abstract : THE PRACTICE OF FALLOWING BY THE SENOUFO IN NORTHERN IVORY COAST Two visits, at 14-year intervals, in two Senoufo villages in the north of the Ivory Coast, made possible an analysis of the evolution which has taken place and brought to light the difference between the two types of agriculture in practice. The village of Syonfan is dynamic with an important augmentation of cultiwated areas, this due to the development of mechanization. The village of Karakpo is less ready to accept any innovations and this has led to the stagnation of mechanization and a moderate progress in gains in cultivated superficy. Paradoxically, in the first village, fallowing, preceeding planting of the individual parcels, is longer, this, where pressure on land is even greater. The responsibility for overgrazing lies probably with the herds belonging to the Peuls. The second locality, where there is a large availability of land, sees a natural development of vegetation after the fields have been abandoned.
