Pulses being important source of protein are essential adjunct to predominantly cereal based diet of large Indian population. Among all major pulses grown in India, pea (Pisum sativum L.) is considered as one of the important pulse crop. Pea diseases are major constraints to pea production in the developing countries. These diseases affects the crop both quantitatively (yield) as well as qualitatively (seed quality). Among these, the rust of pea caused by Uromyces viciae–fabae (Pers.) J. Schrot is considered as most important under warm and humid conditions. This review explains the geographical distribution, biology, epidemiology of pea rust pathogen and finally the different management aspects of rust disease of pea, such as the alteration in date of sowing, use of resistant cultivars, role of biotic and abiotic elicitors in induction of host plant resistance and lastly chemical control measures which cannot be avoided and must be taken into consideration up to environmentally safe level.

Keywords: Rust Disease Pea, Pisum sativum
