For corn, 1 t/ha is equal to 15.9 bu/ac, so 10 t/ha is about 159 bu/ac.

Subject: bushels per acre to tonnes per hectare

Dear maize bionet group,
I am trying to compare maize production in England to that in the USA.
However, maize data I have from the USA is in units of bushels per acre,
while it is given in tonnes per hectare in England.
Please could anyone tell me the conversion factor of bushels per acre to
tonnes per hectare.
