Before determining the commercial volume of all Nuova Flesan products, whether cultivation media or peat, it is necessary to operate as follows.
What is the volume of a loose solid?
The question is very relevant to peat and off-soil cultivation media. In fact, the farmer knows the overall volume of the containers to be utilized (whether pots, trays, or other) and, therefore, the amount of growing medium needed. In this regard, the Ministerial Decree of 30 December 1986, amending the attachments of Law 748/1984, in effect at the time, required that the labels, packaging, and/or shipping documents of the peat indicate the volume, not the weight as generally required for other fertilisers.
