You may also want to look at grain drying techniques. I found this FAO
"Grain storage techniques: Evolution and trends in developing countries,
Chapt. Chapter 5 - Drying methods."
"Expert consultation on planning the development of sundrying techniques
in Africa, Chapt. 4.10. Improved sun-drying and solar drying: basic
considerations and selected applications."
"Solar-Energy Drying Systems"
Aprovecho has also done some work on solar and wood-fired drying. Their
publication, "Capturing Heat Three: Wood Burning Heating Stoves, Farm
Sized Dehydrator, Composting Toilets (That Work!), Solar Drying, Solar
Desalination." may give you some ideas. I located a copy here:
There are myriad other drying options to be found on the internet. Maybe
that's not such a good thing.
Good luck. Let us know what you decide and how it works.
