Tech/Engineering - Agriculture / pesticide nebulization - story of a company told by its founder.
Italian term or phrase: basso volume
"Consegno 10 Nebulizzatori *** portati da 300 litri, con dichiarazione liberatoria come da me indicata e sottoscritta; faccio una dimostrazione unica alla presenza di tutti come si deve usare il mezzo trattando a *BASSO VOLUME* concentrando 10 VOLTE la miscela chimica, imponendo anche una RIDUZIONE di insetticida del 30% della DOSE abituale."
(...)
"Dopo una stagione di trattamenti, sorpreso ed entusiasta dei risultati a 150 l/ha nei frutteti, in tempi in cui anche in Romagna si stava introducendo il TURBO ATOMIZZATORE per sostituire la lancia a mano e l’ IRRORATRICE a barra, propone ai suoi mezzadri l’acquisto consociato e progressivo del NEBULIZZATORE come il suo, precisando che in caso di eventuali rifiuti condivide l’acquisto del normale ATOMIZZATORE, ma rimborsando la sua parte di spesa per ANTIPARASSITARI ridotta del 30% come avviene con l’uso del suo NEBULIZZATORE.
TUTTI accettano il *BASSO VOLUME*."

The capitals are like that in the original.

So, is "basso volume" a way to apply pesticides? What's it called in English, the? Just "low volume " or does it have a different name? I've found this, which clarifies thing s bit, but doesn't help with the translation: http://www.acquabuona.it/2008/09/le-tecniche-di-irrorazione-...

low volume
Explanation:
I guess we are talking about a machine called mist-blower sprayer or simply sprayer. In this case, a low volume sprayer, because it needs a low volume of water, as opposed to high volume sprayers.
