A non-government organization, Developmental Association for Renewable Energies (DARE),  has introduced the first Solar-Bubble-Dryer for Nigerian farmers with the aim of reducing the huge loss of farm produce they usually encountered.

As was published in VON, the NGO’s director, Engineer Yahaya Ahmed, told journalists at the center that the reason for introducing this machine is to help the farmers to reduce the loss of food crops and other cash crops they usually produce.

According to him, the Solar Bubble Dryer (SBD) is the latest low-cost drying technology developed, which can help rural and urban farmers tackle the problems of post-harvest and loss in Nigeria.

He said, the machine will be useful for drying tomato, mango, apple, and all crops, and the taste would remain as it is like fresh farm crops.

He added also that, the SBD is mobile and completely independent from fuel or the power grid and, therefore, has very low operating cost.

He note that the equipment can last for over 20 years, if properly used and maintained in a good manner.

Yahaya also pointed that the model comes in different sizes, with current models having 0.5 and 1t batch capacity, which can help local farmers generate money and save them from annually loss and damages of their farm crops.

He said “It can be used for drying grains and crops and other farm produce. It is the cheapest and the best way to preserve all farm products in Nigeria,” and appealed to all Nigerian farmers to embrace the initiative.
