The analytical review of domestic and foreign literary sources regarding the determination of the optimal density
of pea agrocenosis (Pisum sativum L.) depending on the soil-climatic conditions of the growing zone, varietal characteristics
and other factors is given. As a result of the analysis, it is established that scientists and producers still do not have a
common opinion on the determining the optimum seed rate for sowing peas. A large number of messages have a long history
performed in different regional conditions and comprehensive studies on the influence of seed rates, sowing methods and
weather conditions on the pea productivity under the conditions of unstable moisture of Right Bank Forest-Steppe of Ukraine
were not conducted at all.
