An analytical review of literature sources on the spreading area, world acres and gross collection, nutritional and fodder value of pea was given. The state of studying the issue on classification and species diversity of green pea (Pisum sativum L.) was given. It was established that green pea was an important agricultural crop of world agriculture, which was inferior only to grain cereals in terms of production volume and was characterized by a significant variety of morphological forms. Despite the considerable long period of cultivation and research, a number of issues on the centers of origin, classification, genetic diversity and ecological-and-morphological features of this crop remains controversial even now among researchers and practitioners and needs further study.
