    Title: Generic Clearance of Multiple Crop and Pesticide Use.
    OMB Control Number: 0503-NEW.
    Summary of Collection: The primary purpose of this information will 
be to support the Office of Pest Management Policy (OPMP) understanding 
of agricultural practices pertaining to pest management. OPMP is 
undertaking this effort to satisfy legislative requirements outlined in 
Title X, Section 10109 of the 2018 Farm Bill, which mandates that The 
Secretary of Agriculture, acting through the Office of the Chief 
Economist's Director of OPMP, collect this information.
    Pest management information is critical to supporting a key 
responsibility of OPMP, i.e., to ``consult with agricultural producers 
that may be affected by pest management or pesticide-related activities 
or actions of the Department or other agencies,'' as outlined in the 
Agricultural Research, Extension, and Education Reform Act of 1998.
    Need and Use of the Information: This request for approval will 
improve OPMP's ability to better understand the utilization of pest 
management tools by agricultural producers via input from pest 
management advisors--including Extension experts and crop consultants, 
who in addition to being advisors are often agricultural producers

for rapid data collection. OPMP will use several methods to collect

based surveys, telephone surveys, interviews, and/or focus groups may 
be needed under certain circumstances.
    If the information is not collected, it would deny the agricultural

better understanding of pest management practices that may be unknown 
by the federal government, this consequence is especially valid for 
underrepresented specialty crops.
