Funds of up to $10,000 are available through disaster recovery grants for primary producers impacted by the October storms.
Assistance is being provided through the jointly funded Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements for those who suffered damage through severe storms on October 28-29.
Federal Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey said hail, strong winds and heavy rainfall caused significant damage to crops and farm infrastructure across SA on those days.
"From Eyre Peninsula right through to the Victorian border, the storms impacted many different farming sectors," he said.
"While grain farmers regularly insure their crops against possible hail damage for other types of farms insurance products are far more difficult.
"The storm smashed horticultural producers on the Adelaide Plains and caused enormous damage to infrastructure like glasshouses and the crops within them."
Mr Ramsey said an estimated $100 million in damage was caused to horticulture on the Adelaide Plains alone.
"Similarly wine grapes, particularly focused in the Clare region also suffered serious damage and significantly reduced tonnages for the coming vintage," he said.
Mr Ramsey said the wine sector was already under stress from export difficulties.
"The grants can be used for clean-up and debris removal, salvaging crops and repairs to damaged farm infrastructure and equipment and will lessen impact and disruption of production," he said.
Member for Barker Tony Pasin said hail, strong winds and heavy rainfall caused significant damage to crops and farm infrastructure across the Barossa, Murraylands and Riverland.
"The storm was unprecedented in the way it hit so many different farming sectors, but this support will lessen impact and mean less disruption to production," Mr Pasin said.
"The disaster recovery grants provide short-term targeted assistance to help growers get back to business as soon as possible."
Disaster assistance is available to primary producers in the 24 council areas of Adelaide Hills, Adelaide Plains, Barossa, Barunga West, Berri Barmera, Clare and Gilbert Valleys, Cleve, Coorong, Elliston, Gawler, Karoonda East Murray, Light, Loxton Waikerie, Mid Murray, Mount Barker, Murray Bridge, Playford, Port Pirie, Renmark Paringa, Salisbury, Tea Tree Gully, Tumby Bay, Wakefield and Yorke Peninsula.
