The article reviews various techniques for mathematical modeling of the soybean drying process. The purpose of this paper is to review, analyze and compare existing approaches to mathematically describe the processes of moisture movement during microwave drying of soybeans. The only way to provide mathematical modeling of the processes occurring in the soybean grain is a combination of the transformation of microwave energy into heat, the heating of dipole water molecules existing in the seed, the processes of moving moisture from the center to the grain shell and evaporation of moisture. Today, microwave drying is one of the promising areas for research, because this method is much more efficient than traditional post-harvest grain drying methods and, at the same time, poorly understood. Factors on which the process of microwave drying depends on are the speed of movement of moisture in the micropores of the product, the initial temperature and humidity of the raw material, the placement of the main magnetron relative to the object of drying and the speed of movement of raw materials in the drying chamber. The object of the study in this article was to simplify the mathematical model of soybean seeds.
To intensify the process of microwave drying, it is advisable to use a combined effect, such as blowing, which increases the intensity and quality of the process of microwave dehumidification. In addition, in this case, the simultaneous use of two or more factors of influence, which allows for rapid processing of raw materials. This determines the relevance and prospects of this study. The developed criteria criterion is substantiated and described, which allows to simplify the complex calculation of microwave energy transfer processes, sample heating and moisture velocity in it.
The basic approaches to the construction of a mathematical model of the soybean drying process are considered, and their expediency is determined. The analysis of various methods of mathematical description of the drying process is carried out, the main disadvantages of these methods are identified. It is established that drying soybean seeds in the microwave field is one of the most promising. A mathematical model for a combined soybean drying process with a combination of microwave drying methods and air blowing is proposed.

Keywords: soybean, grain, drying, equation, environment, humidity.
