The article analyzes the scientific approaches to periodization of agrarian (agricultural) legislation of Ukraine. The author determines the main periods of agrarian legislation. Conclusions on further development of the legislation that regulates agrarian relations are grounded.

Taking into account existing scientific approaches, it is possible to allocate two great periods of development of the agrarian legislation:

And - from the end of the 1960s to the beginning of the 1990s - the period of formation and development of agricultural legislation of the USSR and the Ukrainian SSR;

ІІ - from the beginning of the 1990s - till now - the period of development of the agrarian legislation of Ukraine.

The modern period of development of agrarian legislation is characterized by essential features related to the emergence of new types of agrarian relations, the expansion of the range of their subjects in the context of agrarian reform in Ukraine. This is reflected in the qualitative updating of the content of the normative legal acts of the agrarian legislation, deepening their complex content, and increasing the scope of agrarian-legal regulation.

In addition, the essential direction of the development of Ukrainian agrarian legislation is its adaptation to the requirements of the EU and WTO acts.
