A crop-dryer of lO-tonnes (or 10,000 FBM) capacity has been constructed for the Barbados Agricultural Development Corporation at their Spencer's Estate, based on the ABRICO Controlled Solar Drying concept. The project was a joint effort of BADC and the Canadian International Development Agency. The dryer will be used as a deeonstration and production facility by BADC. Crops to be dried include peanuts, onions, cassava and cotton-seed. This paper describes the construction and operation of the dryer and includes a discussion of the economics of drying.
