One is volume, one is weight, so you can't unless you identify what the substance is.

In the US both the states and Federal government have standards for how many pounds in a bushel of various crops. There is some variation in the number state to state. You have to search.

[b]Nurseries offer daffodil bulbs in bushels or half bushels. I have no idea how many bulbs this means or what the weight in pounds or cwt. would be. Can anyone help?

I have no idea what the density of bulbs is, but most crops seem to run roughly 50-60 pounds/bushel.

A bushel is 2150.42 cubic inches (legal definition and overly precise) or about 1.25 cubic feet.
