WHAT IS LOW VOLUME TECHNOLOGY?
Although the word is perceived as 'low volume', it should actually be perceived as a 'right volume' rather than a low volume.
The term 'low volume' actually refers to an understanding of spraying. The basic principle in conventional spraying systems is to spray the droplets with high pressure through a narrow nozzle to make them reach the herbs. However, this practice is insufficient to achieve the goal and also it brings many disadvantages. Insufficient and inadequate spraying method not only increases the production costs but also it causes many problems caused by the spraying method.
The average size of the droplet which can reach the herb in conventional machines is in the range between 300μ - 500μ. Because of their size and weight, these droplets will drip onto the soil or they will accumulate undesirably at the bottom of the fruit causing the residue. It is not possible to cover the surface with droplets at this size. Unless the surface is covered, the benefit obtained from spraying will decrease regardless of the increase in the amount of chemical used.
The diameter of the droplet will reduce to the level of 50μ-100μ at the machines manufactured by low volume technology, and the applications will have maximum effect by the penetration of much less chemical to the herbs.
In the end, by using low volume technology, you can apply pesticide to at least twice as much area by using the same amount of chemicals by conventional machines. It is possible to penetrate the most difficult places to reach because of the size of the particles therefore the perfect result can be achieved.
In conventional systems, droplets cannot glide in the air due to their size, they will only reach the area where they are sprayed and they will drop by flowing from there and causing deposits and residue. It has also been proven to be the main cause of the problems such as sunburn by acting as a lens for the sun rays due to the big size of the drop.
