In commercial contracts, the "bushel" has become a secret code for a unit of weight which depends on the commodity. The bushel is officially defined as 2150.42 in^3, however, it is a problem to measure large quantities as volume and states have adopted laws defining the weight of a bushel in pounds, but the figure differs for wheat, rye, corn, etc.

You'd have to find that figure.
