District Agriculture Officer, Dr.Ramesh Pandoh, Sub-Divisional Agriculture Officer, Sudhir Manhas and Agriculture Extension Officer, Ramban, Jagdish Bali were also present on the occasion.

The CAO informed that these Solar Dryers actually costing Rs.14000 in the market, were given to the farmer for only Rs 14,00/- on 90% subsidy and each of this Solar Drier can dry any vegetable, fruit or spices under sunlight unaffected by the rain and dust without decolourising the dried product.
