Understanding Grain Test Weights
Grain test weights are often used to tell the quality of the grain. Test weight is a measure of density and is measured in pounds per bushel. For yellow corn the official minimum test weight is 56 pounds per bushel . However, the overall standard test weight of 60 pounds per bushel is used to convert the scale weight of soybean loads to the number of bushels contained in the load. If test weights drop below this standard, the grain price is discounted. Test weights are determined by weighing grain samples filled in a standard dry one-quart measure.
