Welcome to CSIR-IIR

"The domain of leaders is the future. The leader's unique legacy is the creation of valued institutions that survive over time.
The most significant contribution leaders make is not simply to today's bottom line; it is to the long-term development of people and institutions so they can adapt, change, prosper, and grow"

CSIR-IIR designed, constructed and transferred a cool house technology to vegetable farmers in Kumasi to cut down post-harvest losses.


Throughout the period between harvest and consumption, maintaining optimum temperature which often requires cooling is the most important factor in preserving fruit and vegetable qualities.
During cooling, heat is transferred from the produce to a cooling medium such as a source of refrigeration. Air conditioners are traditionally used as a reliable source of coldness but are electronically limited such that it cannot cool a room below 16°C.
