2019 SASHA Brief 20. Solar-powered storage in Mozambique: Lessons learned and way forward.

Design, installation and testing of a solar-powered storage facility (Fig.1) was conducted over four months in Marracuene, Mozambique using fresh roots of four varieties. The percentage of marketable root weight was above 70% of the initial weight at four months of cold storage in all the four varieties. There were no significant differences in dry matter, zinc, fructose, glucose, sucrose, and protein from one month to four months of storage.
