## How much is a bushel: grain's classic measure

Before we talk about how much a bushel is, we first have to establish what a bushel even is. It may sound unusual to some of us, but it's actually an old English measure used for hundreds of years.

A bushel is used to measure agricultural commodities, but here’s the interesting part: it's a volume unit, not a mass unit, so it isn’t the same for every type of commodity.

For example:

Wheat — One bushel weighs about 60 pounds.
Barley — One bushel weighs about 48 pounds.
Oats — One bushel is about 32 pounds.

In terms of volume itself, one bushel is equal to 2,150.42 cubic inches (35,245.38 cubic centimeters).
