One of the key ways GPSA seeks feedback is through surveys. GPSA runs two standard surveys every year – the mid-year Grower Priorities Survey and the Harvest Review Survey. In addition, GPSA promotes surveys from Primary Producers SA and on other important issues.

Harvest Review Survey

Every year, Grain Producers SA surveys growers seeking feedback on the recent harvest, how it went, how they rated bulk handlers and grain buyers’ performance and intentions for the season ahead.

The survey will take 5 minutes and there’s a $500 fuel voucher up for grabs!

Grower Priorities Survey

GPSA conducts an annual grower survey to determine issues they are experiencing in the industry and how they rate as a priority for their business. It is anonymous and only takes five minutes to complete however it will help GPSA to better advocate for growers and develop policy and submissions on your behalf.

You could also be in the running to win a $500 fuel voucher!

Eyre Peninsula rail network and transport survey

Grain Producers SA is seeking feedback from grain growers on the Eyre Peninsula regarding rail and road transport of grain.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) and Genesee & Wyoming Australia (GWA) have partnered to prepare a business case to consider the Eyre Peninsula (EP) railway network.

DPTI is also developing an EP Transport Study in parallel to look at broader issues. SMEC Australia Pty Ltd has been engaged to undertake the EP Transport Study and Infrastructure Australia has been engaged to prepare the business case, with both pieces of work expected to be completed by the end of March 2018.

The work will be governed by a Steering Committee to provide guidance and direct the Project Team during preparation of the EP Transport Study and Rail Business Case as well as oversight of stakeholder management. 

To deliver the Eyre Peninsula transport study and rail network business case the Project Team may engage with key stakeholders from various sectors and industry groups. GPSA is a member of the Key Stakeholder Reference Group.

The Project Team will require input from the key stakeholders to:

Act as a point of contact for the project team in relation to specific questions or requests for further information or advice;
By manner of their membership, assist the project team to promote and support the project as necessary.

If you are a GPSA member and an Eyre Peninsula grain producer, please consider assisting GPSA to formulate and develop responses by completing a survey.
