Almost 1000 songs have been submitted to Grain Producers SA’s (GPSA) inaugural Harvest 100 with an all-time Australian rock classic taking out number one spot – Driving Wheels by Jimmy Barnes.
Over 60 per cent of the more than 900 song submissions came from grain producers with grain supply chain participants, other agricultural industries, media and political identities, and community members also participating.
GPSA Chief Executive Officer Brad Perry said it was fantastic to see so many grain producers and others engaged in the Harvest 100.
“We received so many song submissions that we’ve been able to pull together a 250-song playlist for the inaugural Harvest 100 which will provide hours of listening as grain producers start up the headers,” said Mr Perry.
“Not only did we receive an impressive amount of song submissions through the Harvest 100, but it also created many discussions which act as a reminder to grain producers about the importance of mental health and wellbeing and talking to their fellow growers during harvest.
“With our grain producers spending significant amounts of time sitting on machinery this harvest, the Harvest 100 is an initiative aimed at creating a community knowing that many other growers across the state are listening to the same playlist.
“The final 250 playlist is a big mix of quirky tunes, country music, hits from decades past and some of the latest songs frequenting the airwaves.”
