The tremendous rise in demand for energy has led to a scarcity of conventional sources of energy like fossil fuels, thereby pushing us in search of alternative sources of energy. Sun is the ultimate source of energy, and there is a need to harness it to sustain the growth of mankind. The purpose of this review is to examine different ways to harness solar energy and use it to dry various agricultural produce. A brief review of various types of solar dryers being used in India is presented in this article. With the advancement in science and technology, several inexpensive, efficient, and innovative solar drying devices for drying different agricultural products have been discussed. Solar dryers can reduce significant amounts of moisture and thus preserve the products for longer time periods. This reduces product wastage and enhances the productivity of farmers.
