Appropriate Postharvest, Handling, Processing, and Marketing of Dried Apricots in Southern Tajikistan

This page was created to provide the information generated as well as the reports created by an USAID Hort Innovation Lab funded project.

Project Objectives

  1. Evaluate the market and barriers to produce export-quality dried apricots
  2. Assess food safety challenges and develop guidelines for good post-harvest and food safety
  3. Compare solar dryers developed at Purdue University
  4. Develop meaningful collaborations with in-country partners in training of local farmers

Apricot Growers Handbook

Based on data collected and technologies developed, we put together a Growers’ Handbook to provide Tajik growers with market, business, food safety, and post-harvest knowledge to improve their apricot business.

  • Section 1: Business planning and market information (download section here)
  • Section 2: Food Safety issues (download section here)
  • Section 3: Improved solar drying technologies for fruit and vegetable crops (download section here)

You can download the handbook in Tajik in different resolutions (higher, lower resolution).
