Upton Agricultural Technology is Australia’s specialist and leader in locally engineered and built centre pivot and lateral move irrigation equipment and is proud to say it is an Australian made and owned business.

Plus, it supports farmers and irrigators with a full range of water movement products including bore hole and associated pumping and piping systems.

Upton Agricultural Technology formerly known as Upton Engineering has the resources to design manufacture and install a perfect property centre pivot or lateral irrigation system with their 80 years of experience to draw from

Director Paul Upton explains, “We have a wealth of experience in centre pivot and lateral move irrigators with installations and dealers in every state.”

Current export opportunities include India and Pakistan and the USA where it is working with a pivot dealer in Texas.

“And they are all designed and built in our Corowa plant, shipped to farm sites and installed by our crew and commissioned on site,” Paul adds.

“For instance, we have just completed the installation of a complete 850-metre-long lateral move irrigator for a corporate client at Narrandera NSW.

“We have used corrosion resistant high strength aluminium piping and the machine incorporates a channel, or ditch fed water supply pumping system.

“It also includes a GPS alignment system so that the machine accurately and consistently tracks the supply channel and remains aligned along its length.

Working on a design and installation with Upton Agricultural Technology will give farmers the ideal set-up for their property as was the case on this busy farm operation

“Our corporate client is using the machine for irrigated pasture production to support its cattle and lamb fattening operation.

“At 850 metres in length, we know that this is one of the largest lateral move irrigators ever manufactured in Australia,” Paul notes.

Upton Agricultural Technology also has either centre pivot or lateral move solutions for any size of enterprise in horticulture, wastewater dispersal or intensive cropping operations.

“Our focus is on using the latest innovations in GPS, smart phone applications and constant operating data collection from operating systems,” Paul adds.

The company offers a full site inspection and design service.

It also offers a free important guide on request known as ‘The Top Ten Mistakes People Make When Installing A Centre Pivot’.
