As redglasses correctly stated, it is a 3rd party DLC.
My understanding of how that came about is that winners of the mod contest https://farming-simulator.com/mods.php? ... est&page=0
get a chance to make a 3rd party commercial Add-on or DLC for Farming Simulator.
It almost certainly won't be a DLC for FS19 - certainly not for consoles at least (third-party commercial DLCs aren't allowed on consoles). Presumably it will just be a free mod released through the ModHub the same as any other mod.
As for the Mod Contest DLC that was limited to the FS17 Mod Contest, and you didn't have to win it (just needed to be placed in the top three of any category I seem to recall) to present your ideas for a third party DLC (which GIANTS paid for and published). The sole winning entries were MattXJS's Modern Classics DLC and the yet-to-be released (if it ever will be) Grimme DLC from FSI Modding.
There was no such reward for the Mod Contest for FS15. However Creative Mesh are extremely close to GIANTS and Krone - indeed the Krone team for the Farming Simulator League is made up of Creative Mesh members and they were at Agritechnica taking part in FSL and answering questions about the FS19 version of the Straw Harvest DLC.

Giants never published this dlc that was done on a third party website on fs17. Don’t know how they are going to do it for fs19
While GIANTS neither published it nor supported it (in terms of software support), they did give Creative Mesh permission to publish it. To this day it's one of only two third-party DLCs for which they've done this.
As I said above, expect the Straw Harvest DLC to be a free mod for FS19, not a DLC as such. The console version will keep as much functionality as possible without external scripts (that may mean that certain aspects are missing from the console version).
