Drying is one of the most cost-effective means of perservation of grains, crops and foods of all varieties. From both energy and environmental viewpoints, as well as the global requirement to feed the growing population, it is important that the drying technique and technology be improved to reduce spoilage and enhance the quality of the product.

This volume is a compilation of selected invited and refereed articles covering topics of contemporary interest on agricultural and food drying technologies.
