Agricultural products were dehydrated by solar energy using thermo-convectional dehydrators of direct and indirect type made from indigenously available material. By these dehydrators, agricultural products (fruits & vegetables) of common use were dried under hygienic environment. The cost of dehydration was nominal, whilst the quality of the dried products was of marketable standards. The findings suggested the large scale use of such dehydrators as an economic means of drying fruits and vegetables for off-season use.
