A plant drying system and method for efficiently and uniformly removing moisture from plant material such as hemp or marijuana. The plant drying system generally includes a vessel having a chamber and an agitator within the chamber, for agitating the plant material, and applying microwave energy to the plant material within the chamber by a microwave generator. The material may be agitated by an agitator extending into or through the chamber. The method further may include detecting temperature within the chamber, monitoring a temperature of the plant material within the chamber by a control unit, and adjusting a level of applied microwave energy by the control unit so as to maintain the temperature of the plant material within a desired temperature range.
