Abstract: The primary objective of the National Agricultural Statistics Service is to prepare and issue State and national estimates of crop and livestock production, disposition, and prices. The Fruit Chemical Use Survey collects data regarding chemical usage (herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides) and pest management practices used on targeted fruit crop(s). Information from these data collection efforts is used extensively by government agencies in planning, farm policy analysis, scientific research, and program administration. This collection was suspended on April 4, 2007 due to budget constraints. NASS will resume this information collection and will publish the Agricultural Chemical Usage 2009 Fruit Summary on July 28, 2010.
