Fruit Chemical Survey Participants Wanted

The USDA is conducting a USDA Fruit Chemical use Survey.
The survey, that provides data concerning agricultural chemical use on fruit crops, has not been conducted since 2007. This year’s survey focuses on 20 selected fruit crops and the information will be collected by the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS).
“The Fruit Chemical Use Survey gives producers the opportunity to explain how they use agricultural chemicals responsibly to produce a safe, healthy, and high-quality food supply” said Vilsack. “The resulting data will help support the regulatory programs that protect the health and safety of agriculture producers and consumers alike.”
Survey responses will be collected until December and will be published in July 2010. The information is expected to be used for decision-making regarding everyone who grows fruit in the agriculture industry.
Growers are encouraged to participate. For more information visit or call (800) 727-9540.
