Chemicals Regulation Directorate (CRD) commissioned Risk & Policy Analysts (RPA) to carry out the research, which will question local authority, sport, waterway, transport and conservation groups.
RPA senior consultant Nigel Tuffnell said: "It aims to give the CRD an ongoing understanding of how much and what kinds of pesticides and actives are being used."
Tuffnell said he was keen to hear from users such as in-house sprayers and contractors as well as manufacturers, approval holders and distributors.
The survey, Determining the Usage & Usage Patterns of Amenity Pesticides across the UK, is due to be published in the new year.
