How much does a bushel of shelled corn weigh?

A:

One bushel of shelled corn weighs 56 pounds on average, whereas a bushel of corn ears weighs about 70 pounds. Weights can change based on moisture content of corn, and these standard weights are for moisture content of 15.5 percent.

Shelled corn with 10 percent moisture weighs 52.56 pounds per bushel, and the same amount weighs 72.8 pounds for 35 percent moisture content. Ear corn weighs 63.49 pounds at 10 percent moisture and 95.71 pounds per bushel with 35 percent moisture.
