RAPID Solar Dryer (Rapid Agricultural Produce Indirect Dryer) – This is an improved solar drying Technology that will change current farmer reliance on direct sun-light for drying of produce in rural low income settings. The technology will make agricultural produce drying more efficient for different types of produce, reducing losses, aflatoxin contamination and drag. Specific areas regarding the solar dryer for this Garage session include:

– imparting a unique component in the dryer

– Ideas feeding into the design of a larger/bigger prototype for bulk produce
– security of the large prototype
