This handbook is a compilation of weights, measures, and conversion factors used for agricultural commodities and their products. Several of the conversion factors and values shown in this handbook can be applied to many commodities. Some factors and values relate to specific commodities or products. This handbook supersedes Statistical Bulletin No. 616, Conversion Factors and Weights and Measures for Agricultural Commodities and Their Products (1979). When feasible, general purpose tables were updated to reflect changes in agricultural production and marketing. Considerable emphasis was given to metric measures.
