Recent energy conditions have caused a reexamination of the use of solar energy for the drying of agricultural crops. As a result, because of the great importance in developing alternate energy sources as substitutes for conventional energy sources, research was conducted with the following objectives:
1. Test a multi-use solar energy intensifier-thermal energy storage system using various drying systems for a low temperature hay drying application.
