The Solar Dryer has been redesigned and developed for community based drying in the rural areas. The Dryer will be low cost—not exceeding INR 15000/. It will integrate modular features for economical mass manufacture. And easy assembling-disassembling features ensuring convenient transportation. Mindful of the end user requirement, insightful user friendly features include: humidity control, flap opening door operations and a low minimum of 10 kgs for drying— without losing on performance and technical parameters. With an eye on social design surrounding the drying process: the goal is to eventually, also, create a brand and market for the dried crops.
