Development of Mechanical Yam Vibrator with Adjustable Frequency and Amplitude at Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Ogun Nigeria

Overtime weight loss and sprouting of yam tubers during storage had been creating issues among farmers and storage Engineers. Interaction of energy with matter has tendency of bringing change in the matter. To establish the effect of mechanical vibration on the physical properties of yam tubers and sprouts; this study therefore developed mechanical yam vibrator with adjustable frequency and amplitude at Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Ogun Nigeria. A mechanical yam vibrator ...
