SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Dried Prunes Produced in California, Marketing Order 993. OMB Number: 0581–0211. Expiration Date of Approval: February 28, 2006. Type of Request: Extension and revision of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: Marketing order programs provide an opportunity for producers of fresh fruits, vegetables and specialty crops, in a specified production area, to work together to solve marketing problems that cannot be solved individually. Order regulations help ensure adequate supplies of high quality product and adequate returns to producers. Under the Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act of 1937 (AMAA), as amended (7 U.S.C. 601– 674), marketing order programs are established if favored in referendum among producers. The Department of Agriculture (USDA) is authorized to oversee the order’s operations and issue regulations recommended by a committee or board of representatives from each regulated commodity industry. The Prune Marketing Committee (Committee) is responsible for locally administering the California Dried Prune Marketing Order, M.O. No. 993 (order). The information collection requirements in this request are essential to carry out the intent of the PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 AMAA, to provide the respondents the type of service they request, and to administer the dried prune marketing order program (7 CFR part 993), which has been operating since 1949. The California dried prune marketing order authorizes the issuance of grade and size regulations, inspection requirements, and volume regulations, when in effect. Regulatory provisions apply to dried prunes shipped both within and outside the production area to any market, except those specifically exempt. The order also has authority for research and development projects. Import grade and conditions requirements are implemented on dried prunes imported into the United States, pursuant to section 608(e)(1) of the AMAA. When a voluntary prune plum diversion program is implemented under the order, the Committee is required to survey commercial prune dehydrators to determine dried weight equivalents for fresh prune plums to be diverted. The Committee will obtain commercial dehydrators’ annual dryaway ratios for the preceding five years and will compute a five-year average dry-away ratio for each dehydrator. The Committee will then average those ratios, compute a five-year average dryaway ratio for each producing region, and will apply that ratio to diverted prune plums in those regions. The survey is needed so the Committee can compute and announce dried weight equivalents for fresh prune plums for use by those choosing to participate in a voluntary diversion program. The survey will be used when a voluntary diversion program is implemented. The information collected is used only by authorized representatives of the USDA, including AMS, Fruit and Vegetable Programs’ regional and headquarter’s staff, and authorized employees of the Committee. Authorized Committee employees and the industry are the primary users of the information and AMS is the secondary user. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average .25 hours per response. Respondents: Commercial prune dehydrators. Estimated Number of Respondents: 17. E:\FR\FM\28JNN1.SGM 28JNN1
