The voice of
South Australian Growers
GPSA advocates on behalf of SA grain producers, representing their interests to decision-makers in all levels of government, the SA Parliament, and to commercial and other groups across the value chain.
GPSA engages industry stakeholders regarding policies we believe will promote the economic and environmental sustainability of grain production, providing leadership and influencing outcomes.
GPSA informs grain producers on matters of importance to their business and champions the contribution we make to the South Australian community by engaging positively with the public.
DON'T BE A BRIGHT SPARK THIS HARVEST
South Australia grain producers are being warned against complacency this harvest through Grain Producers SA’s (GPSA) ‘Bright Spark’ campaign. With grain producers able to continue using the Grassland Fire Danger Index (GFDI) measured at two metres, it is vital that they are fully prepared to prevent a fire from occurring.
Our ‘Don’t Be a Bright Spark’ awareness campaign is aimed at putting the emphasis on fire prevention in grain producers’ hands by providing a reminder of their obligations under the Grain Harvest Code and general commonsense.
The 2023 Edition of Harvest 100 has been released! Aussie rock anthem – AC/DC’s song Thunderstruck – received the most song submissions to take out number one spot.
The second GPSA Harvest 100 is a diverse mix of country music, hits from decades past and some of the latest songs frequenting the airwaves that is sure to get a strong run during harvest
Grain Producers SA (GPSA) is undertaking consultation on a proposal to change the collect method and rate of the Grain Industry Fund (GIF) and Grain Industry Research and Development Fund (GIRDF
South Australian grain producers are encouraged to read the documentation provided about the reasons behind the proposed changes and take the opportunity to provide a preferred position through the survey.

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.
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.
