maligaya dryerFrom time to time, we’ll feature interesting inventions and equipments designed with the small farmer in mind. Today we present the Maligaya Flatbed dryer we found at the Open Academy for Philippine Agriculture website. Among the interesting features of this Philippine-developed machine are;

  • Multi-crop capability for other grains like corn, coffee,legumes, and other crops (banana and cassava chips) aside from palay
  • Uses farm byproducts like rice hull, corn cobs, or coffee hulls as fuel for heating drying air
  • Allows income generation from custom drying operations

    The drying rate for cassava could be enhance (both for solar or mechanized dryer)if we could develop a cassava slicer, at the very least, capable of slicing a cassava raw tuber into 10×10 centimeter cube (uniformly). Or the size of a pine apple chunk. And a rate 5 to 10 tons per hour. Our company would be interested in collaborating with any individual or a corporation in developing such machine.
