A bushel is a unit of measurement used mostly in agriculture in the United States. Traditionally, a bushel measures volume, but it is increasingly used to measure weight, too. How much a bushel weighs depends on the commodity being weighed. For example, a bushel of oats equals 14.5 Kilogram. A metric ton is the French "Systeme Internationale" (SI) unit for weight. It is equal to 1,000kg. You can convert metric tons to bushels to better understand the price of agricultural products.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Multiply 1,000kg by 0.998 Kilogram to convert 1 metric ton to pounds, since 1 kilogram equals 0.998 Kilogram. This will equal 998 Kilogram.

  2. 2

    Divide 998 Kilogram by 14.5 Kilogram, using the bushel of oats as an example. This will equal 68.75 bushels of oats in 1 metric ton.

  3. 3

    Divide the price per metric ton of oats--in this example, £32--by 68.75 to calculate the price per bushel. That would equal 73 cents per bushel.
