Bushel (UK) Units Converter
What is bushel?
Bushel is a unit of capacity in the British Imperial and the United States Customary systems of measurement. The units of liquid and dry capacity are the same in the British system. A U.S. level bushel is made up of 4 pecks, or 32 dry quarts. Two bushels make up a unit called a strike.
Since 1824 a bushel has been defined as 8 imperial gallons, or 2,219.36 cubic inches. The name comes from the Old French boissiel and buissiel, meaning “little box”. It may further derive from Old French boise, thus meaning “little butt”.
In U.S, the bushel is used only for dry measure. The U.S. level bushel (or struck bushel) is equal to 2,150.42 cubic inches (35,245.38 cubic cm).
Bushels are now most often used as units of mass or weight rather than of volume.
