A bushel of shelled corn weighs 56 pounds (25.401 kilograms).
A bushel actually used to be a volumetric measurement but due to inconsistency in volumes between crops like corn, wheat or soybeans, it was changed to 60 lbs, then 56 lbs.
Somewhere between 50 and 100 pounds. Yeah, that sounds like a pretty big variance, and it is. The key variable here is the moisture content of the corn. At 5% it would weight 49.81 pounds. At 50% moisture, it would weight 94.64 pounds.

But for marketing purposes, the USDA specifies one bushel of dried, shelled field corn weighs 56 pounds and is at 15% moisture content. All values are based on that measurement.
Thanks for the feedback!
