Enter the weight in pounds and the conversion factor into the calculator to determine the volume in bushels. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Lbs To Bushels Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the conversion from pounds to bushels.

B = L / C


  • B is the volume in bushels
  • L is the weight in pounds (lbs)
  • C is the conversion factor specific to the type of crop (lbs/bushel)

To calculate the volume in bushels, divide the weight in pounds by the conversion factor specific to the type of crop. The conversion factor represents the weight in pounds of one bushel of the crop. For example, for corn, the conversion factor is 56, as one bushel of corn weighs approximately 56 lbs.

What is Lbs To Bushels?

Lbs to Bushels is a conversion factor used in agriculture to convert the weight of a crop in pounds (lbs) to its volume in bushels. A bushel is a unit of volume used in the United States for dry goods, especially agricultural commodities. The conversion factor varies depending on the type of crop, as different crops have different densities. For example, a bushel of corn weighs approximately 56 lbs, so to convert lbs of corn to bushels, you would divide the weight in lbs by 56.

How to Calculate Lbs To Bushels?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Lbs To Bushels using the formula B = L / C.

  1. First, determine the weight in pounds (L).
  2. Next, determine the conversion factor specific to the type of crop (C).
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = B = L / C.
  4. Finally, calculate the volume in bushels (B).
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
