Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Bushel is really a unit of volume, 2150.42 cu. in. It is occasionally encountered as such by consumers at roadside and farmers' markets.

However, in commercial contracts it is treated as a unit expressed in weight. They weigh the truck and convert to bushels for pricing. The weight per bushel varies by the commodity, and the USDA has a table, some states have their own. Once you have the proper numbers of pounds per bushel for the commodity and state of sale, you can easily convert to kilograms. 60 lb/bu is a common value for wheat.
