How many tons of barley would you expect from an average size field?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The US average for barley is about 65 bushels per acre, with a test weight of 48 pounds per bushel. This amounts to 3,120 pounds per acre, which is 1.56 tons per acre. Just multiply that times the number of acres in the field and you'll have your answer.

There is no "average size field" in the US. Depending on which part of the country you're in, an average field size can be anywhere from one acre in organic farming areas to as much as 1,000 acres in the plains states.

Ask around. You may find some producers or farmers that have been harvesting barley that may have some for sale for you, or who may know a neighbour, friend or relative (and which may know people as well, and so on and so forth) who may be able to sell some to you. You can also find advertisements in local town/county classifieds, local or regional ag newspapers (like the Western Producer for most folks in Western Canada), online classifieds like Craigslist, Kijiji or even eBay, or even some farming websites will have classifieds for you to browse through.

North Dakota, Idaho, Washington and Montana are the top four barley-growing states of the US. Alberta and Saskatchewan (of Canada) are the major barley-producing provinces. You are very likely to run into some farmers that may be willing to sell you some barley straw if you look into these states and provinces.
