The world is continuously facing the pressure of maintaining food security for its increasing population. The use of pesticides is critical in achieving the food production targets; however, there exists human health and environmental concerns. Against this backdrop, this article attempts a bibliometric analysis of global research on pesticides carried out from 2010 to 2021. The purpose of this analysis is to track the recent progress in pesticide research and identify predominant research themes. The analysis is based on research articles identified using the Scopus, which is processed further using VOSviewer and biblioshiny package of R. The results demonstrated a rising trend in the number of published articles on pesticides and hence an increase in research interest. The predominant authors, journals, research organizations, and countries contributing to pesticide research are identified. Our findings will be helpful for beginners in the research field of pesticides since they can act as a ready reckoner.
