DON'T SPRAY YOUR DOLLARS AWAY CAMPAIGN

GPSA has launched a new spray campaign titled ‘Don’t Spray Your Dollars Away’ focusing on the economic losses for grain producers who don’t do the right thing. The campaign will be featured heavily through text reminders to South Australian grain producers, in newspapers, on the radio and on social media throughout late January and February 2024.

This campaign will run side by side with our ‘Keep Your Droplets to Yourself’ Campaign – delivering many relevant facts and actions to help prevent spray drift. Download the factsheet with tips on best practice spray application here. 

TAKE THE SPRAY PLEDGE

Grain Producers SA (GPSA) and CropLife Australia have teamed up to launch a new initiative for grain producers in South Australia to take the ‘Responsible Spray Applicator Pledge’.

South Australian grain producers are being encouraged to take the voluntary pledge to demonstrate they are using best practice when spraying agrichemicals on-farm by visiting www.spraypledge.com.au.

Once the grain producer has completed the pledge, they will be sent a ‘Spray Pledge Pack’ which includes a letter, certificate, corflute and bumper sticker, as well a $100 voucher.

About Us

Grain Producers SA is the peak industry body representing the 4,500 grain farming businesses in South Australia. Established in March 2012, GPSA was formed out of the need for an organised and well-funded lobby group to be a voice for South Australian grain growers beyond the farm gate.
