Minimising Post Harvest Loses for the perishable crops are the major area of demand driven technology intervention have been sorted in the present era in the country. India as an tropical country, which has large scope for solar drying, and simultaneously it is an agrarian country with huge agricultural wastes generated after harvesting every seasons produces large scale Biomasses. Solar Energy and Biomass together are utilized to produce required amount of heat to remove moisture in the perishable crops inside a drying chamber with the simulated controlled atmosphere is the area of research in this paper. This dryer uses intelligent system which is based on microcontroller, which monitors the temperature and humidity inside the dryer chamber, this controlled atmosphere helps us to maintain desired temperature as well as humidity in the drying chamber. This unit is tested for onions, garlic, and leafy vegetables in this research.

Keywords: Dryer, Leafy Vegetables, Perishable Crops, Thermal efficiency
