The solar drying system utilizes solar energy to heat up air and to dry any food substance loaded, which is beneficial in reducing wastage of agricultural products and helps in preservation of agricultural products. A solar cooker is a device which uses the energy of sunlight to heat food or drink or to sterilize it. The vast variety of the solar cookers presently in use are cheap, low tech devices, because they use no fuel and cost, nothing to operate, they reduce air pollution and slow deforestation and desertification. Solar cooking is a form of outdoor cooking and is often used in situations where minimal fuel consumption is important, or the danger of accidental fires is high Solar energy represents non-polluting, inexhaustible renewable source of energy that can be utilized economically to supply man's needs for all the time. The performance evaluation of the system was carried out. This equipment was tested for cooking and drying of food materials.

Keywords: Solar cooking, solar Drying, solar Energy, Renewable source, Agricultural products
