Comments regarding this information collection received by May 30, 2019 will be considered. Written comments should be addressed to: Desk Officer for Agriculture, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), New Executive Office Building, 725—17th Street NW, Washington, DC 20502. Commenters are encouraged to submit their comments to OMB via email to: OIRA_Submission@OMB.EOP.GOV or fax (202) 395–5806 and to Departmental Clearance Office, USDA, OCIO, Mail Stop 7602, Washington, DC 20250– 7602.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless the collection of information displays a currently valid OMB control number and the agency informs potential persons who are to respond to the collection of information that such persons are not required to respond to the collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Agricultural Research Service Title: Your Perspective on Your Grasslands in the Northern Great Plains. OMB Control Number: 0518–NEW. Summary of Collection: The Agricultural Research Service within the Department of Agriculture will conduct a mail survey titled ‘‘Your Perspective on your Grasslands in the Northern Great Plains’’ under authority VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:08 Apr 29, 2019 Jkt 247001 of 7 U.S.C. 2131. This survey is a key component of a project that will provide comprehensive evaluation of the ecological and social benefits, costs and risks of different land management practices in northern Great Plains grasslands invaded by Kentucky bluegrass. Need and Use of the Information: The survey will collect information from a randomly selected subset of landowners in 9 Counties in North Dakota to assess and identify sustainable management practices of northern Great Plains grasslands; specifically, focusing on Kentucky bluegrass expansion. The information gathered from the survey will enable researchers to more effectively transfer information to landowners to increase the impact of this research on the agricultural community of the northern Great Plains. Failure to collect this information to know how farmers and ranchers perceive and manage ecosystem changes in relation to Kentucky bluegrass limits the scope and reduces innovation of current research efforts to inform sustainable land management practices in the northern Great Plains. Description of Respondents: Individuals or households. Number of Respondents: 1,278. Frequency of Responses: Reporting: On occasion. Total Burden Hours: 141.
